Seeds Sprout…

Mark 4:26-28

Mark 4:26-28“The Kingdom of God is like a man who scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows. He does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain.”

“First the stalk.
“Second the head.
“Third the full kernel in the head.
“Finally, when ripe, he puts the sickle to it. The harvest has come.” – Mark 4:26-28

Lord, tonight while I sleep I ask that you bless our seed.
