There are many paradoxes in life.
Isn’t it curious that in the design of plant life, some of the seeds that have the ability to be converted into nourishing food for us must be set aside and allowed to die? Then, at some later time, these same seeds are planted again, spring into life as plants, and the seeds are multiplied in abundance. The dead seed brings new life.
As we die to self, submit to the will of the Father, and follow his agenda rather than our own, God will use us to create a plentiful harvest. So, “dying” is not so bad after all!
