The Seed Who Was Afraid To Be Planted
This children's rhyming book tells the story of a seed who lives in fear of being removed from the drawer where he lives happily with other seeds. One fateful day his worst fears come true and he is buried in the ground outside. To his amazement he soon realizes that he is destined to grow into a magnificent tree overlooking a beautiful sunlit shore.
This inspiring story is one that any child can relate to, since it deals with being afraid of new experiences and change. This book will help young readers to cultivate the courage to face all their fears and to understand that good can come of any frightening situation as long as they have faith.
Most importantly, these pages also contain a profoundly biblical message about the transformative power of God's grace. Christ told several famous parables involving seeds and grains that have to "fall to the ground and die" in order to "bear fruit."
