The principle of growing faith can be illustrated in a story of King Tut’s tomb. King Tut (abbreviation for King Tutank Hamon) was the famous Egyptian Pharoah buried about 1357 B.C. in an extremely elaborate pyramid-grave. His tomb was discovered completely intact in 1922 by an English archaeologist. Inside, among its treasures, was found honey, wheat and corn.
Curious to see what would happen after 3,279 years, the archaeologist had the wheat and corn planted in fertile ground by the Nile River. There it would receive proper moisture and nourishment from the soil.
Within the normal maturation period, a harvest of wheat and corn sprang up- a harvest from seed over 3,000 years old.
Though it may lay dormant for three and a half millennia, in that seed was the potential to produce and to reproduce a notable harvest. All it needed was the proper environment in which to grow.
