Sow Good Seed!

The fern photographed for this post has an abundance of spores vital to continue its life cycle.  “Spore” derives from the ancient Greek word spora, meaning “seed, sowing,” related to sporos, “sowing,” and speirein, “to sow.”

We sow seeds spiritually in all that we do.

Some people sow seeds of kindness. I’ve watched others sow seeds of destruction and lack.

What we choose to sow and how we choose to do so is even more critical to our existence. Often the choices we make (or don’t make) impact our lives for years to come.

If the farmer sows irrationally with little thought or plan, the harvest will be poor. Yet when time is taken to plan, nurture and protect a harvest, the outcome is far more pleasing.

Are you carelessly dropping good seed on shallow ground? Or do you choose to give a bit more thought to your speech and deeds?

In everything we do, we sow for good or for bad. 

Choose wisely.

God and the garden devotional sow good seed 9-2015 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Galatians 6:7-9 NKJV

      1. I know you love your garden, and it is a fantastic one indeed! Our roses came up well this year, even in the California drought!

        I’ve visited your new website a few times and like the posts. Good job with it Lilka!

        Have a good one today,

      2. He provides water in the desert!
        So glad to hear about your roses. I don’t think mine did quite that while this year but I tried sunflowers for the first time this year and was pleasantly surprised. As always, thanks for taking the time to stop by and comment. Peace to you! 🙂

      3. Hi, Lilka! You know, the builders of our home had sunflowers in the garden when we bought the house. We took them out in favor of the roses and a couple of evergreen bushes.

        Now, some 8 years later, the garden seems “bullet proof” and my wife and I always enjoy the way the roses bloom. Yes, God provides enough water even in the desert…(plus we have a sprinkler system too.)

        It’s a pleasure as usual to stop in and read your posts. Please visit as you can here too and leave any comments!

        Enjoy your day,
        Steve
