To everything there is a season
A time for- 1. planting, 2. cultivating, 3. weeding, 4. pruning, 5. harvesting. So get out those gardening tools, set those little clay pots on the counter, and start sorting the seeds. Lets get started: 1. A time for Planting- - Selecting the seed: So many different kinds of seeds are available for planting in the fertile soil of hearts. There is, only one with a guarantee to produce the fruit of eternal life. - Luke 8:11"This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is God's word. - Sowing the seed: You & me are the sower of the good seed, along with every other child of God. Count on it to take root! So" A TIME FOR PLANTING:" Read: Matthew 13:1-23 and Luke 8:4-14 about Christ's parable of the sower. (But please remember that a parable is an earthly story with a heavenly meaning.) I ask you what Kind of Soil do you see, and the Reaction to Seed? Next in this parable, what is Jesus illustrating with the use of: Seed, Sower, Soil, Fruit. Galatians 5:22-23 Gardener. So after reading & studying these verse's does this encourage you to sow even tiny mustard seeds of faith, daring to anticipate the promised fruit? Can you remember how the good seed was first sown in your life? How you were aware that it was taking root? Look up Luke 8:11,15. I pray this study will help you grow in the Lord.
