Max Lucado's Devotion: The Power of a Seed
By Boaz Wadel
Want to see a miracle? Take a small seed, put it under several inches of dirt. Give it light, water, and fertilizer. It doesn't matter that the ground is a zillion times the weight of the seed. The seed will push it back! Never underestimate the power of a seed.
James, the epistle writer, wasn't a farmer. But he knew the power of a seed sown in fertile soil. "Those who are peacemakers," he said, "will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of goodness" (James 3:18).
How good are you at sowing seeds of peace? Jesus modeled peace through acts of love, washing the feet of men he knew would betray him, and honoring the sinful woman whom society had scorned.
Want to see a miracle? Plant a word of love heart-deep in a person's life. Nurture it with a smile and a prayer, and watch what happens!
