The throne room was quiet as the Master watched one of His children. The young woman was talking to a group of her friends and explaining her faith.

"She's proclaiming Me," the Lord said, smiling with pleasure.

The whisper made the angels smile, too, and they sang a sweet song in praise of Christ. The Master knew that the young woman's words would stick in the minds of some of her listeners. A seed had been planted.

Again, the throne room was quiet as a young man began to sing. He sang an old, sweet song that had many times been sung in praise of the Savior.

The Master wept as He said, "He is proclaiming Me."

This made the angels join the young man's song, adding their praises to his. The Master's heart had been blessed.

A young woman stood in a crowded room, looking over the many books that were for sale.

She overheard a young woman next to her saying, "No, honey. We can only buy one book. I've only got two quarters and your brother wants a book, too."

Hearing this, she fished in her purse for a dollar.

"Go ahead and get your kids some more books," she said, handing it to the mother.

The mother tried refusing, but when it was no use, she gratefully took the money, excitedly explaining to her daughter that they could get more than one book after all.

"She's proclaiming Me!" the Master shouted with joy in His voice.

The shout electrified heaven, setting the angels to singing a joyous song of praise. The Master knew that a seed had been planted by this expression of His love. It would make it's mark. And the heart of the Master had been blessed.
