Series on Plants Part I- Imbibition

Beloved I have to be honest with you all, I had absolutely no idea what I was going to write about on Mondays now that we’ve finished our trek through Noah’s Flood. In my morning readings I happened upon 1 Corinthians 15 and could not contain my excitement! I had to read it through a second time. If you take the amazing advice given by John MacAuthor and pick a certain section of Scripture to read daily until it becomes apart of you may I recommend this chapter? It’s so good that it’s started me off on a new Monday series!

Seeds! We’re going to work through the steps a seed goes through to become a full grown plant. The intricacies of Gods creation never cease to amaze me! Seeds are no different. As you may know, dry seeds can remain that way for years, some even for centuries, and still be able to grow when water is introduced. The process where the seed changes to draw in water is called imbibition, the clip below shows how very elaborate the mechanism is.

Granted, that clip is a little dryer than the usual videos I find, pun fully intended! However, the point is clearly made that there is much more to plant growth than meets the eye. Without imbibition a seed wouldn’t be able to be moved by the wind, Animals, or even humans, like they do now. The Creator has deliberately designed seeds this way so that they could spread. What a wonderful God we serve, brethren! I pray this series will bless you all, dear ones, and as always be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
