Seeds are most often very small and they seem so insignificant, that is until you put them in the ground. Once they begin to grow they become much larger than their original form and they even multiply themselves hundreds of times over. It is no wonder that God uses this seed analogy to describe the influence that His church should have on our society and culture. Knowing how the seed multiplies is the key to maximizing our influence as God’s church.
Somewhere inside of all of us, we want our lives to be perfect! We want the perfect kids, perfect spouse, perfect job, perfect body… you name it! Sadly, year after year we fall short and often make little progress in our quest! What if this year the pressure was off and we decided perfect is no longer the goal. Instead of perfect, what if we all just chose to be BETTER! We can choose to be a better parent, we have better health, we took better care of ourselves, and had a better attitude. It is time to stop beating yourself up and start on your personal journey to be BETTER!
