THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: EVERYTHING GOOD BEGINS IN SEED FORM. That’s right, seed form. Which means small, very small. We look at a seed and marvel at what it can become. You put it in the right environment, apply the right amount of water and that seed will germinate, begin to grow and what it becomes is nothing short of a miracle. One of the great miracles of God’s creation. That serves as a perfect analogy for everything in your life that is valuable, worth while and good. You don’t get instant crops as a result of putting a seed in the ground, neither do you get instant fruitfulness in the various areas of your life. Whether it’s a marriage, your ministry and calling, a good friendship or your relationship with Jesus Christ. Patience, keeping everything in the right environment, which means keeping your heart right and your attitudes straight is what is required for every seed that is growing in your life to bring a good result. This has a very profound spiritual application. [Galatians 6:7-8] “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but HE WHO SOWS TO THE SPIRIT WILL OF THE SPIRIT REAP EVERLASTING LIFE.” The Holy Spirit is talking about kind of seeds you are sowing. The impetus is on us to make sure we are SOWING GOOD SEED IN GOOD SOIL. Our words, our actions, one prayer aimed in the right direction, a kind gesture or a good offering. All of those in themselves are small gestures…but that’s the point. THEY ARE SEEDS, ONCE SOWN….CAN BEGIN TO GROW. Consider this today and have hope that the seeds you are sowing will eventually bring a great harvest. Remember, EVERYTHING GOOD BEGINS IN SEED FORM.
