The Word is a seed

I told Ricardo, one of my soccer teammates, about a Bible app that people at my church loved. A year later he said, “Mike, I’m almost done reading the Bible on that app you told me about.”

He was in the homestretch of his first-ever time reading the Scriptures! Even better was what he told me about his soul: how the Word had been changing him, especially in his attitude at home and the way he handled stress at work. I was given a fresh reminder that the littlest moments can turn into the biggest blessings in the kingdom of God.

Because God’s Word is like a seed. When we read the Bible, hear the Bible, pray the Bible, share the Bible, or discuss the Bible, God is scattering seeds in our hearts. These seeds are potential-packed truths that grow into some of our biggest blessings.

Jesus taught, “But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown” (Matthew 13:23).

Downloading an app or opening a Bible might seem like a small habit to some, but to those who have tasted and seen that the Lord is good, the Bible is electric in its potential. Today you might read a devotion or get back to Bible-reading, but these are enormously important in the way God works.

Your devotional life might seem small. Seeds are too. But they don’t stay that way.
