I remember reading a story about a woman who goes into a shop and finds God behind the counter. She asks what they are selling and God replies “Whatever you want you can get here.”
Proving herself worthy of this opportunity, the woman asks for peace, love and happiness, adding that she wanted this not just for herself, but the whole world.
She is expecting great things and can’t help but be rather disappointed when God hands her a small packet.
God explains ” We don’t sell fruit or the finished article, only the seeds.”
In other words, the whole world can have peace, love and happiness, but first, we, meaning you and I, have to sow the seeds to start the process.
