The lesson from harvesting potatoes

 

potatoes

Last summer, I was harvesting potatoes at my mother-in-law’s home. When I dug up some potatoes, there were a couple of rotten ones among the many clustered on the stem. I was curious about the odd potato which was empty and broke into pieces when I touched it. I asked my mother-in-law about the odd potato. Then she told me that the odd potato is a ‘seed potato’.

The seed potato which is buried in the ground will sprout after a month. The sprouts’ roots in the ground get their nourishment from the seed potato before they are able to get nourishment for themselves from the ground. Come to think of it, the potatoes which had sprouts from the empty and thoroughly rotten seed potato were big and sturdy. However, the potatoes which had sprouts from the half-decayed seed potato were small and weak. I was even able to find a seed potato which had remained intact without any fruit. The teaching of God ‘unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds’ came to mind when I saw the potatoes from the empty and thoroughly rotten seed potato were big and sturdy. I think I can bear strong and beautiful fruit if I sacrifice myself thoroughly. There are many spirits who come as fruit from all over the world because of the sacrifice of Heavenly Father Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother. I want to be a kernel of wheat in WMSCOG that falls to the ground and bears fruit a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.

    Heavenly Father and Mother teach us many things through the earthly principles.

    Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother teach us the way to bear many fruits. It is impossible to bear fruits without sacrifice and love.  I also will practice the giving love to others , as God sacrificed himself and practiced the Giving love to me.

    I also want to be a kernel of wheat to bear many spiritual fruit for the glory of our Elohim God. I’ll do obey the teachings of God by sacrificing myself.

    Without any effort , we can not gain anything.
    Without any sacrifice, we can not save life.
    We try to follow the sacrifice of Heavenly Father Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother.

    Not only the image of God but also the divine nature are reflected on Their creatures. As the big and sturdy potatoes come from the empty and rotten seed potato we have grown up spiritually by Mother’s sacrifices which even never allow Her to show the pain to Her children. Mother’s sacrifices become a deep and rich fragrance encouraging us to love each other and save souls.

    There are many children who have different characters
    It is too hard taking care of even one
    Then, How about heavenly Mother?
    She has to take care of children like sand by the sea
    Thanks to Heavenly Mother
