A dream from one of my kids…
Farms were not planting the usual seed stock
That they had in years before.
Production had gone down another five to ten percent,
So the farmers decided to try something new instead.
They were using a new miracle seed that some scientists had created. It was one seed that promised it all.
It reminded my child of the old Shamwow commercials in the way they marketed it to the general public, and promised more than what you thought it could deliver.
What made this seed so different?
This seed would grow into whatever you wanted it to be.
Just one seed,
Could be made into any number of food producing plants.
How this was done,
Was not seen in the dream.
It was sensed however,
that some kind of genetic manipulation,
done in the science labs before being shipped out to the users
Is what caused this one seed,
To produce the different kinds of fruit, vegetable, or herbs,
That the people desired.
The miracle seed most often grew as a vine,
With the different fruits or vegetables hanging off from it.
Sometimes this one seed often produced several kinds of produce from the one vine all at the same time.
For example, clusters of tomatoes, strawberries, and watermelon were seen hanging from the same single vine, with just a foot or two between them.
The seed didn’t take too long to produce the food;
Most of the produce was harvested within just a few months
From when the seed first went into the ground.
It increased production and was easy to grow,
Dependent of course, upon the weather.
This seed became so popular, (it was ‘the newest thing’ after all,) that the stores soon stopped selling the regular vegetable, fruit, and herb seeds. Those soon became a relic of the past.
‘Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. 12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.’ Genesis 1:11-12)
When we deviate from God’s ways, it is NOT good!
“Why do the nations rage, and the people plot [conspire] a vain thing? … the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, ‘Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away their cords from us.’ He who sits in the heavens shall laugh… and distress them in His deep displeasure…. [But] blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.” (Psalm 2:1-12)
