If you want to see change in the world, it must first start from within. Let it start by being a decent person doing good deeds for others, treating people how you’d want to be treated and seeing the humanity in all, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, or popularity. Whether good or bad, every seed gets planted.
You could either plant a good seed in someone that will result in a good harvest or you could plant a bad seed that will result in a bad harvest. Our world is full of various types of seeds. We are what we plant. What we plant becomes the crops (future) of the world. Like a seed planted in the ground, who we are, the words we use and how we treat people grows inside of us all. As it grows, it will either blossom or die.
In life, there’s good, positive people (seeds) and there’s bad, negative people (aka weeds). As you grow into the person you’re meant to be, you’ll learn how to sort out the crops of people that try to root themselves around you. “The seeds of good deeds become a tree of life; a wise person wins friends.” (Proverbs 11:30 NLT)
“Jesus replied, “The Son of Man is the farmer who plants the good seed. The field is the world, and the good seed represents the people of the Kingdom. The weeds are the people who belong to the evil one. The enemy who planted the weeds among the wheat is the devil. The harvest is the end of the world, and the harvesters are the angels.
“Just as the weeds are sorted out and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the world. The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will remove from his Kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. And the angels will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in their Father’s Kingdom. Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand!” (Matthew 13:37-43 NLT)
I challenge you today to take a hard look in the mirror. Decide who you want to be and what you want to plant / project to the world. Choose good over evil & lay the right foundation for the next generation.
Sincerely with love,
