Mark 4:14-20, Matthew 5:13-20
It is always a great joy to plant seeds and then to enjoy the fruit of the harvest. These children in Zambia are learning the value of planting seeds and caring for the garden so they can have vegetables to eat.
The great joy, opportunity, and responsibility of believers are to sow the seeds of God’s Word each day. The sowing of the seed may be done in the way we respond, speak, act, and many other ways. We are to deposit the Word of God into others as we pass through each day, and then God works in the hearts to produce a response to the seeds sown.
The people that we encounter each day are in great need, and it is our opportunity to sow the seeds of Biblical truth as we interact with them in various aspects of life.
