But we will be changed. (1 Corinthians 15:51)

“Don’t pull out the potato plants,” Mom called from the porch.

“Okay, Mom.” Helen skipped to the garden and ran along the row to the potato patch. She was going to fetch her favorite supper; new potatoes. Mom would cook them, smother them with white sauce, and add lots of freshly picked peas.

Finding the two biggest plants, Helen dug with her hands until she got to the roots. She pulled five potatoes off the root, and then heaped the earth back so the root was protected. She did the same with the second plant, uncovering the root then digging her fingers into the soil to pull out a potato. She felt something mushy ooze between her fingers. Her hand was plastered with rotten potato. “Mom!” Helen rushed to the tap by the side of the house. “Look what I found under the plant.”

Mom smiled as Helen washed her hands. “This rotten potato is the one we planted for seed. The new potato plant sprouted from it.” Mom’s voice turned serious. “You know, Helen, this rotten potato reminds us of a great Bible truth.”

“What’s that, Mom?” Helen wanted to know.

“A new plant came because this potato died. The Bible says it’s like that with us. Our physical body dies, but when Jesus comes again, we are raised a spiritual body.”

“Wow!” Helen looked at the remains of the rotten potato, then at the lovely big new potato plant. Then she took Mom’s hand and walked into the house with the potatoes she had picked.

Prayer: Thank you, God, for Your promise that we will be raised with glorious new bodies when Jesus comes. Amen.
