Be a Pollinator
Christian Inspiration and Motivation
Pollinators are small but mighty. They are God’s greatest gardeners! When God said, "be fruitful and multiply," pollinators answered the call. Not only are they responsible for a significant source of the food we consume, but they also are a metaphor for Christian evangelism.
Pollinators like bees, hummingbirds, butterflies, and bats travel from flower to flower, spreading pollen. Through this process, fruits like cherries, blueberries, and even almonds are produced. This is an oversimplification of the process, nevertheless, Christians can learn a lot from it. Once we feed on the Word of God, we should share the Word with others, thus, producing the fruit. Amen! Amen!
There are countless Bible verses that instruct Christians to evangelize. Luke 8:39 recounts Jesus' words after healing the man possessed by demons, "Return to your house and describe what great things God has done for you." (New American Standard Bible)
And, Psalms 66:16 tells us, "Come and hear, all who fear God and I will tell you of what He has done for my soul." (New American Standard Bible)
Evangelizing is more than just sharing the good news. It also requires us to be the living embodiment of Christ like qualities. I created the Be a Pollinator acronym of Christian attributes as a resource to remain faithful to God's Word.
