Let's Be Careful What We Plant

The story is told of a successful Christian businessman who was growing old and knew it was time to choose a successor to take over his business. Instead of choosing one of his directors or his children, he decided to do something different. He called all the young executives in his company to the board room and he told them, “It’s time for me to step down and choose the next CEO, and I have decided to choose one of you.

The young executives were shocked, but the boss continued. “I am going to give each one of you a seed today — one very special seed. I want you to plant the seed, water it, and come back here one year from today with what you have grown from the seed I have given you. I will then judge the plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next CEO”
