Selflessness is a very powerful characteristic of the sons and daughters of God. The actions that stem from them will often have powerful and unexpected effects on those who are touched by them. Acts which we produced solely from the heart and only for the intent of goodness can produce eternal seeds of grace.
Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.
Matthew 13:8 (New International Version)
