A bee lives but a few days and visits daily a total of 5,000 flowers to pollinate them. What an impact this little faithful worker leaves. In such a short life this little bug makes it possible for many flowers, fruits, and vegetables to fulfill their purpose. The bee is not selfless in the act of pollinating all these flowers. These bees have in mind a bee hive to feed and help maintain.
The battle to keep the faith is a strong one. The idea that we need one another to fulfill the purpose God gave us on this earth should not be a shock. Bees need each other to build the amazing beehives they construct. The Kingdom of God is not just to have a nice time together but to practice righteousness, peace, and joy in Jesus Christ. Why would you need righteousness when you reach heaven? It all starts here on this side of eternity. The Lord molds our character to become more and more like His son Jesus. The day you are judge, you will be judge for your actions and your deeds. Are you heading in the right direction?
I loved a movie called Gladiator when the main actor quoted: “what we do in life, echoes in eternity.” Yes how right he is in what he is saying. For everything that we do, think, and say has a way to impact the life we live and the legacy we leave for our next generations.
My prayer for us today is…
May we choose to be as selfless and as a willing servant for all who need our encouragement or our help. May we submit to love one another as much as we love ourselves. May we learn to love who’s we are in order to love others the way they deserve. May we choose the will of our Heavenly Father above our own always. May we have an impact on souls as the bee does with such a little lifespan. In Jesus name. Amen.
