Have you ever sat and just watched a bee on a flower? Its job is to collect and deposit pollen. It is amazing to think about how important these tiny bees are to the world. Many things depend on them for survival. Without them, there would be fewer flowers; some kinds of plants wouldn’t be able to produce fruit‒like blueberries and cherries. There is even a species of birds that feeds on bees that would become extinct without them. There would be a definite negative ripple effect if bees were to disappear.

Why am I sharing this? I sat and watched the bees on our flowers outside one day, and I had the sense that the Lord calls each of us to be like these small yet magnificent creatures. We are each called to “pollinate” the world with God’s love. We are told in Mark 16:15 to “Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature.” Imagine the positive ripple effect that would cause! I share the love of God here with you, and you now go and share it with others, and on and on. That creates quite a big effect in the world!

God’s love has been creating ripples for over 2000 years, when out of His great love for you and me, he sent his only son Jesus into the world to save us from our sins. Jesus took our sins upon himself and died on the Cross for us. He conquered death when he rose from the dead and ascended into heaven. By this, heaven has been opened up for all who believe. God loves you so much! He wants all of us with him for all eternity in heaven.

So go, pollinate the world with His love. If you do not know where to start, try spending some time on the Comfy Couch found in our ‘Explore’ tab. Let that pollen stick to you, then go and share it with others. The next time you see a bee on a flower, thank the Lord for their hard work in making the world a more beautiful place. While you are at it, thank him for the beauty you bring to the world as well.
