Seeds require a lot of work to see the results (prepare soil, plant seeds, water them, get rid of weeds etc). A bouquet (cut flowers) – no matter how beautiful they might be – can’t multiply themselves. They will wither and die. But seeds – when looked after – can grow many flowers with beautiful blossoms.
What does God call us to be? A bouquet or seeds?
The sermon will show how Jesus – through his “new commandment” – calls us to be people sowing the seeds of love. Love in action. It’s a powerful witness to the un-churched about the love of God.
