Throughout generations, God has always scattered His people as seeds to respond to the needs of His humanity. As seeds in Gods' hands we don't have to choose where God must plant us but to go where He is scattering us to. It's not by chance that you are where you are today, it is His plan for your life. The church exists to do what matters to God.
