Though it is only a small section of Matthew 13, verses 31 and 32 clearly sum up the harvest that Baptist Children’s Home does.
“The Kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed” (verse 31). But Jesus tells us that even though it is a tiny seed—it grows into a giant plant when it is ready for harvest.
So often in raising children, the tiniest mustard seed of a moment can take root in the life of a child.
Our care givers are continuously planting hundreds of tiny seeds in the lives of our children. Just like the parable, they sow the seeds continuously—on the road, in rocky places, in sunlight, among the thorns, and in good soil.
They do it faithfully and cheerfully, but I feel certain that sometimes seeds get tossed into rocky and thorny places because our caregivers are compassionate enough to go to those fields.
As with farming, we must wait patiently as we search daily for a sign of growth. We are confident that God will help each child grow.
Will you join us in this harvest? Our ministry of planting the seeds of God’s love into the lives of hurting families is only possible because you care enough to give.
Because of you—our partner in ministry, we have the resources needed to pour the tiny seeds into the children’s lives. You give sacrificially in creative and thoughtful ways.
Not only do I thank you for these gifts, but I want you to know that you are planting seeds that will impact generations.
Serving with you,
Bill Brittain, President
