It's been my pleasure again to contribute a devotion to the monthly newsletter for my favorite online Christian store, Halas & Phos, Salt & Light. I hope you'll check out their huge assortment of merchandise, from Bibles and skateboards to t-shirts and jewelry and much more. You can sign up to receive their newsletter by email here, and be notified about new merchandise, the latest sales and other encouraging devotions and stories.
“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain.” (John 12:24 NKJV)
A brilliant field of flowers begins with a single flower, and that one flower begins with a seed. The seed must die before it can sprout into a seedling and mature into a beautiful blossom. The blossom then sends out many seeds, the wind carries them and they come to rest in the ground. The cycle repeats itself over and over until the field is ablaze with color and beauty.
Life is brought forth through death.
