This watermelon looks good, doesn’t it? The thing that makes it really great is that it’s seedless. No annoying seeds to worry about.
But there’s something wrong with that, isn’t there? Because God designed watermelon to have seeds. They’re supposed to reproduce.
The sad thing is that this watermelon reminds me of most Christians, and most churches. God designed us to reproduce, to help produce more Christ-followers and more communities of faith. But many are seedless. They focus on themselves and not on others, which may give them less to worry about, but it means they’re ignoring what God designed them for. Because they’re supposed to reproduce.
You’re supposed to reproduce. You’re church is supposed to reproduce. So, are you doing it? Or are you seedless?
