When you think of spring what comes to mind? It may depend on where in this big world you live. I think of birds chirping, baby ducklings, bees, tulips, green grass, hummingbirds, and planting a garden. If you visit your neighborhood home improvement store, in the garden department, you will no doubt find a variety of seeds you can purchase. This is a great project for moms of small children to teach them about plants growing.
If you are a Christian you are a different kind of seed planter. We are to be sowing seeds of love wherever we go and witnessing for Jesus as well. 1 Corinthians 3:6(NIV) says 'I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase.' Sometimes we may not see the "fruit" from our seed planting but if you do your job others will come along further sowing seeds or "watering" what you planted and eventually the fruit will grow into a blossoming plant. You may not get to see the fruit of your initial labor. Perhaps you have been watering lots of seeded already planted.
Are you sowing good seeds for the kingdom of God or bad ones? Galatians 6:7(NIV) says 'Do not be deceived. God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.' Now go out today and plant and water good seeds for the kingdom of God.
PRAYER: Thank you Lord that I have a vey important job in your kingdom and that is to help plant seeds that later can take root in people and help them come to know you. Help me never be responsible for leading anyone astray. Guard my heart. In Jesus' name. Amen.
