Water, Fertilize, Don't Smother

So neither he who plants or the one who waters are anything, but only God who makes things grow. 1 Corinthians 3:7

Spring like temperatures  are here in most sections of the country. This brings with it new hopes, new dreams, starting anew. Many like to plant a garden and have fresh produce right from their own yard. I have strawberries that we planted years ago and look forward to them producing fruit.

When you have a garden you have to water it, weed it, and fertilize it. If you do not you may not have any harvest. You do not want to smother your crops with black plastic or they die.

In the life of a believer we are like seed planters. God uses us to "plant" seeds in other peoples lives. Others come along and water and fertilize it. Perhaps you have not watered anyone lately but maybe God has used you to "fertilize" a cold hard hurting heart. God the produces the growth. Go out today and be a gardener for Christ.

PRAYER: Use me Lord to help "water" those around me. If a person has a need that is in my life help me to be a gardener for you and help them grow more like you. In Jesus' name.Amen.
