The Planted Seed

Nestled in the heart of man is the seed that lies dormant, until it is addressed. Often, for years, it may go unnoticed–no evidence that it is there, but it is . . .

I put it there.

It is the seed of Love.

The spirit of man carries My Nature, planted in their heart–My Nature is Love.

Man ‘grows’ to hate, he isn’t born hateful.

It is a baby’s first instinct to nurse–be nurtured and then to smile. The nurturing, cuddling, holding, begins the growth of that seed of Love inside. It takes very little effort to begin the growth of Love, My Nature, inside the heart of man.

But even so, very little effort will quench!

Trust is broken, fear envelops. But ‘still’ the seed remains–Love. It is the core of man, his True Nature of God, dwelling inside. But experience ‘tells it,’ whether to develop or remain a seed.

Be that ‘experience’ to the next one you meet.

I AM not asking that you awaken them to sin. I AM asking that you touch the heart within.

An untouched heart lies dormant–cold. Years of self-protecting, may make them difficult to reach. But you have the ability to cover the breach. (I Peter 4:8)

You who’ve developed My Love inside–show them that Love–you be their guide!

Love or hate?

Reach them before it’s too late!

Nurture the seed, spoil the weeds–teach them to ABIDE.

“Beloved let us love one another; for love is of God, and he who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God; for God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live though him. In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the expiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No man has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his own Spirit.” I John 4:7-13

“Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. So we know and believe the love God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. In this is love perfected with us, that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so are we in this world.” I John 4:15-17

“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and he who fears is not perfected in love. We love, because he first loved us.” I John 4:18

“And this commandment we have from him, that he who loves God should love his brother also.” I John 4:21

“The Lord looks down from heaven, he sees all the sons of men; from where he sits enthroned he looks forth on all the inhabitants of the earth, he who fashions the hearts of them all, and observes all their deeds.” Psalms 33:13-15

  1. Praise God. What I like best about this is that He plants the seed of love in our hearts. We don’t have to strain and stretch and try to somehow create and manufacture love under our own puny strength and limited understanding. All we have to do is abide in Him, abide in the vine, and let His life, His spirit, His love nurture and grow the seed which He has already planted in us. We love, because He first loved us. He plants the seed of His nature, which is love, in us. Praise God!
