Kingdom Manna


Mark 4:26, He also said, “The kingdom of God is as if someone would scatter seed on the ground.”

Random surveys seem almost purposeless, a waste of time. There is no method, no ground rules, and no intent. Or so it appears. But the actual focus behind a random outreach is to scatter the questions or information to everyone and anyone who will participate.

Who will listen? Who will respond? Who will act?

Recklessly scattering seeds on the ground seems a careless way to plant. There is no soil preparation, no removal of obstacles, no assurance of produce. But they may take root in unobserved corners and unlikely hollows. Bare patches turn luxuriant. Barren holes spring forth plenty.

With consistent regularity God scatters His words into our lives. Outrageous promises delivered to random recipients. He blankets the earth. He enfolds the world. He targets everyone with equal concern. And waits for us to answer. To accept. To bear new life.

Rain Your words deep within my empty holes and dried up feelings, Lord, that I may in turn scatter Your grain with exorbitant waste.

Psalm of Worship: Psalm 147:15

He sends out his command to the earth; his word runs swiftly.
