Faith and Gardening

The Bible defines faith in this way:

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  Hebrews 11:1

This past Saturday, I put faith into practice.  I planted God’s Garden #2.

Seeds that were dry…hard…dead went into an equally dry and barren ground.

Faith says that from these dry seeds life will spring forth.

And, not just life, but life-giving life.  These seeds will bear fruit that will sustain life.

Amazing, isn’t it?!?!

Here’s something even more amazing.

And Jesus answered them, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. (John 12:23, 24)
