The Amazing Power of the Seed

Desert flowers can be colourful.

Joel Kontinen

Seeds are amazing things. They seem to be programmed to produce certain kinds of plants at the very earliest time this is possible.

In a desert environment, this might entail a long waiting time, perhaps even two or three years. A miracle occurs just a few hours after a heavy rain: the ground that hitherto had been brown or yellow becomes alive with green grasses and flowers of a variety colours – blue, white, yellow, red etc.

And all the genetic information for producing this beauty is packed into a tiny seed.

No wonder the Lord Jesus compared faith to a mustard seed. It is tiny but can do great deeds.
