Planting by the Signs

Planting by the Signs
And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: Genesis 1:14
Hey Kids:
Planting is a great time to see how food grows more food.
A potato is just a potato until you place it in some soil.
Place a layer of soil in a large flower pot.
Add a potato on top and cover with soil.
Place it in a sunny location and keep it watered.
When the leaves appear, scrape back the soil to find the potato.
You will likely find a mushy, stinky, rotting potato with roots extending into the soil.
As the potato plant grows the old potato will vanish and lots of new edible potatoes will grow on the roots.
We may look good on the outside, but like the potato, we are pretty stinky sinners. Jesus can give us the change that will make us into strong Christians with a new purpose and life. We can grow into strong Christians and take the gospel to our friends and family, growing more Christians with every witness.
