My Edster is harvesting the seeds for next year. And it got me to thinking...about the lessons of seeds. Look at them! Perfectly placed for their own perfect purpose. Randomly designed? I don't think so! So let's reflect...what can they teach us?
Confession is the act of inviting God to walk the acreage of our hearts. “There is a rock of greed over here, Father. I can’t budge it. And that tree of guilt near the fence? Its roots are long and deep. And may I show you some dry soil, too crusty for seed?” God’s seed grows better if the soil of the heart is cleared. - Max Lucado
Gratitude for the seemingly insignificant—a seed—this plants the giant miracle. - Ann Voskamp

Seeds must be sown everywhere. Only some will bear fruit. But there would not be the fruit from the few had the many not been sown. - Chaim Potok
The tiny seed knew that in order to grow, it needed to be dropped in dirt, covered in darkness, struggle to reach the light. - Sandra Kring
See a flame in a spark, a tree in a seed. See great things in little beginnings. - Richard Sibbes
