Progress not perfection
Thank you so much for this daily seed. It's amazing just how much I needed to read these exact words. I'm not lying when I say they brought tears to my eyes. I will focus on following the advice of your daily seeds.
Dearly Friends in Christ,
Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
Thank you very much Brother
David Lee Byrd for your daily spiritual food
to us. It is a great edification to my spiritual life.
May God bless you richly.
Bishop Albert Kadima L. Mukendi,
“SEEDS” obviously connects with the Scriptures, “as a man sows, so shall he reap,” and “those who sow sparingly, will reap sparingly, those who sow abundantly, will reap abundantly.” But in an age that values “multiculturalism” and casts a “critical” eye on the Scriptures of the “Christian” people (a label evidently applied to us by others, Acts ), we might point out that this concept came forth in other “cultures” as well. Aristotle became famous as a philosopher, partly for an elaborate study of types of cause-and-effect, concluding with such categories as “efficient cause” and so on. Surely our experience of reality must show us that causes do indeed produce effects, that what we do now shapes our tomorrows – and this is the principle of “SEEDS” that Brother Byrd (doesn’t that have a nice ring to it?) has so kindly shared. In an age given to documenting and nurturing resentments and harsh comparisons, I do believe that “SEEDS” carries out another Scripture: “Send forth Your truth and Your light, O God Almightly, let them lead us.” (see Psalms 43:3 ).
