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.
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
