A few thoughts on seeds…

I saw this as I was walking to lunch today, and I heard very clearly, “Some seeds are very easily spread.” 

Dandelion seeds certainly are. I always saw them as fun yellow polka dots in the sea of green lawn. But Papa saw them as grass killers! 🤤

It’s in the vein of killer weeds that I’ve been pondering how easily seeds of discord & gossip, seeds of doubt & fear spread. And how speedily those seeds can multiply. 

But it takes much longer to cultivate seeds of trust, faith, love, and hope.

This is because those seeds need to be planted, cultivated, nurtured, and that requires effort. And time. 

Much effort and much time.

Your words are seeds.

Your words are seeds in your life. 

Yor words are seeds in other people’s lives.

What kinds of seeds are you sowing? What are you speaking? What are you believing? 

Point to ponder while you wander…”A man has joy by the answer of his mouth, And a word spoken in due season, how good it is!” Proverbs 15:23 NKJV
