Seeing the apples in the seed

I heard an old quote last Sunday in church. 

You can count the seeds unable apple but can you count the apples in a seed?

What a quote!  This little statement captures the very essence of farming.  Farming is an occupation,  a calling,  of looking into the future and banking on the promise of tomorrow.  One little seed is not much,  but it is everything.  Just a little care and that tiny seed becomes much,  it becomes food,  profit,  and the future.

Life is like that,  if we spend our time counting our seeds,  we have.. . Well. .. seeds.  If we plant them we have many many apples.  The trick is to see the apples inside our seeds.
