SEEDING THE KINGDOM
When a farmer contemplates seeding his farm, he thinks very carefully about the type of crop he would like to grow, then chooses the seed that has the capacity to offer the best yield of that crop at the harvest. He would consider it unthinkable to plant tomato seeds when he is seeking a harvest of apples. He also should consider it unthinkable if the planted seed is incapable of producing crops with reproducing seed. In that scenario, he would have a harvest of undesireables that, thankfully, would be incapable of continuing the reproductive cycle.
When God contemplated seeding his kingdom, he wanted a people who would never betray him, who would love as he loves, who would lay down their life for others, who would be kind to the downtrodden, and who would reproduce in accordance with their mission. He wanted a kingdom full of kingdom-minded people.
