Day 28, Week 4: Humility (Grass Seed)
Today’s scripture passage:
I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. John 12:24 NIV
Sunflowers are metaphors for my own spiritual journey. Sunflowers are tall, but don’t require great soil to reach their heights. As a child of divorce, I didn’t grow up in ideal conditions, but my pain allowed much spiritual growth. Sunflowers follow the sun as they grow. I have looked to my Heavenly Father as my source of life during my spiritual growth process. After sunflowers bloom, their heads droop with the weight of many seeds. Sometimes I feel burdened with pain, but I realize my story holds the potential to bless others, who are like the seeds that fall and produce a new crop. I want to be a humble person, willing to sacrifice myself, so that others may grow in faith.
What can you do to produce many seeds for God’s kingdom this year?
