"Sowing Good Seeds!" (2 Corinthians 5:11-17, Mark 4:26-34)Rev. Dr. Marjorie E. Nunes, June 17, 2018
Part of the Sunday series, preached at a Sunday service
In our lesson from Mark, Jesus is describing the kingdom of God: “He also said, ‘The kingdom of God is as if someone would scatter seed on the ground, and would sleep and rise night and day, and the seed would sprout and grow, he does not know how. The earth produces of itself, first the stalk, then the head, then the full grain in the head. But when the grain is ripe, at once he goes in with his sickle, because the harvest has come.’’ Now Jesus is not talking about fatherhood in this passage, but isn't this the very first area in which we participate in the coming of God's kingdom to earth? It is in the raising of our children. Raising good children is like scattering seed upon the ground. The key question therefore for fathers today is: How do they prepare the seed—their children for whatever soil they may encounter?
