What the Bible says about light and seed

The True Light "In him, (the Lord Jesus) was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world,…the world didn’t recognize him." John 1:4,9.

The Good Seed and the Weeds “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seeds in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. Matthew 13:24,25.

The Language trap.

A funny thing happened on the way to ...
This morning I was in the bus going back home. An older man all dressed in white which is the way spiritualists dress in Brazil. He  was talking to cute little Japanese old lady. He was telling her about all the cures he had discovered: Alzheimer´s, cancer, HIV aids etc and he was now working on Parkinson´s . 

The lady tired of his foolishness unceremoniously moved up pretending she was getting off the bus. So he tried his snake oil businessman pitch on me. After a while, I politely asked him if he had found a way to eternal life. He looked at me as if I had just landed on the blue planet. So I told him that he needed Jesus if he wanted to live forever.

Previously, in order to appear legit, he told the sweet lady that he spoke French and Spanish and was working on his English. That was a no, no. He put his little foot in his big mouth.

So I started to quiz him, asking him a simple question in beginning French. He looked at me more dumb than founded, started stuttering and said, "I speak more than I understand", which is the opposite of someone trying to make an excuse. so I gently told him that I was a language teacher, that I was French. At that, his white uniform turned instantly pink, out of so much embarrassment at being caught red handed! Then came his turn to exit,


I have such a good time everywhere I go.

Everybody is so nice and helpful when they hear my French accent, they go out of their way to help. But I could not resist the opportunity, this time. It´s so easy to just plant a seed. The name of Jesus is powerful to break down walls.
