“Blessed are the peacemakers,” (Matthew 5:9). Jesus said. The principle for peace is the same as the principle for crops– Never underestimate the power of a seed. Somebody in your world desperately needs a word of peace. Want to see a miracle? Plant a word of love heart-deep in that person’s life. Nurture it with a smile and a prayer, and watch what happens.
When God’s people had forgotten his name, he planted the seed of his own self in the womb of a Jewish girl. The seed shoved away the stones of legalism, oppression and prejudice. Then the stone of death was rolled by humans and sealed by Satan in front of the tomb. But the seed of God shoved, the ground trembled, the rock tumbled, and the flower of Easter blossomed. Never underestimate the power of a seed.
