Good seed, bad seed

Seeds are cool. Hats off to the One who came up with the concept. Imagine - everything needed to produce a complete living organism is contained in one small package. Just add dirt and water. The plant then grows many hundreds and thousands of times bigger than the original package – and then makes more seeds. Brilliant.

The only problem is that this concept works two ways. While I was sowing a few seeds indoors to get a head start on growing some decorative flowers, dandelions were working overtime spreading seeds on my lawn outside, and, judging from the looks of things, have had much more success than I.

We can sow seeds of goodness or seeds of bitterness. It’s guaranteed that each will grow and create more of its kind. I’m going to keep that in mind this week.
