There was a farmer who grew excellent quality corn. Every year he won the award for the best grown corn. One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors. “How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?” the reporter asked.

“Why sir,” said the farmer, “Didn’t you know? The wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn.”

So is with our lives... Those who want to live meaningfully and well must help enrich the lives of others, for the value of a life is measured by the lives it touches. And those who choose to be happy must help others find happiness, for the welfare of each is bound up with the welfare of all...

I read many years ago that when white men started interacting with the Indians here that one of the settlers was discussing raising corn with a group of Indians. They were complaining that their crop and ears kept getting smaller each year. The Indians had always saved the smaller ears for seed instead of the bigger ears. The Indians, after that, started using the best ears for seed and totally reversed the process.

AS Christians, when we tell folks about Jesus, we need to give the very best information that we have so that they will want to learn more each time we see them, water that seed, and pray for a bountiful crop. POWDERMAN. ;D ;D
