Planting Seeds

“Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” (Genesis 1:11 NIV)

Everything starts as a seed. That’s the first law of the harvest.

Every achievement started as a dream seed. Your life started as a seed. Literally everything that’s living on planet Earth came from a seed.

In Genesis 1:11 God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds” (NIV).

A seed is anything valuable that you give away. When you give away praise, there’s value to that. When you give away good advice, there’s value to that. When you give away your time, there’s value to that. When you give away your money, there’s value to that. When you share your experience to help other people, there’s value to that. When you give your love away, there’s great value to that.

It all starts as a seed, whether it’s your time, money, appreciation, wisdom, or energy.

Your words can also be seeds that you plant in people’s minds. They grow, and they bear fruit. So you need to choose your words wisely, especially when you’re talking with people that you love, like your children, your husband, your wife, and your friends.

What kind of seeds are you planting in your relationships? Are you planting seeds of trust, or are your planting seeds of distrust? Are you planting seeds of kindness, or are you planting seeds of crankiness? Are you planting seeds that build up, or are you planting seeds that tear down? Remember: You will reap whatever you sow.  Do not grow weary of doing good!
