Basking in the Son!

As "Inger" finished her pattern block assignment my thoughts meandered to the likeness of a believer's life and the sunflower.

Did you know...

•A sunflower only requires 90 to 100 days to grow.
As a Sonflower are you growing or stagnant?

A single sunflower can have up to 2000 seeds.
My friend, are you producing seed? Are you sowing seed? Do you see the task of being a seed sower as a burden or a passion to produce more Sonflowers?

•A distinguishing quality of the sunflower is that its flowering head tracks the sun’s movement.
Are you tracking The Son's movement? Does your life reflect one that relies on the Son for growth? Do you know that without the Son you would become dried up, lifeless, and useless?

•Growing sunflowers is a great way to attract birds to your yard.
Do we ,Sonflowers, attract others to the seed we have sprouted? Do people see you and want to be near you? Are you reflecting the Son?

•A sunflower head is made up of 1,000 to 2,000 individual flowers that are joined together to a base. The large petals that are found around the edge of a sunflower are individual ray flowers, these do not develop into seeds.
This is a beautiful picture of the body of Christ. Is there unity in the Sonflowers around you? Are you dependent on the strength of other Sonflowers to be encouraged in your growth? For without each other we would not be the Sonflowers that the Wise Creator made.
