Unless A Grain of Wheat....

24 Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.”

JOHN 12 24 

     When a little child is in love with a toy that he or she sees at the store, s/he doesn't want to put it down. His/her whole world, in that time, revolves around the uniqueness and creativity of that toy which has attracted their attention. They will cry and cry until they get that toy. However, the parent knows best. And the parent will know if they toy is too expensive or if it is not needed for the child. 


     In a similar way, we must let go of our selves. We are the grain of wheat mentioned in today’s verse. Unless we die, and give up ourselves, we are just another grain of wheat. Our Missions as children of God is to let go of all that is us and let God in. For when we let God in, we can become fruitful. Our lives, our relationships and we as individuals will grow and grow to produce the best fruit. But we must let go of that toy. We must let go of our lives to welcome the life God offers.
