What Are You Doing With Your Seeds?
When is the last time you considered the amazing capability of a seed? What a tiny little seed can transform into and become is truly a miracle when you think about it. Something so small, once planted, can grow and end up producing so much more than just itself. It really is an amazing phenomenon. Many of the parables that Jesus told during his ministry had to do with the spiritual parallels to planting, and when he told the parable of the growing seed in Matthew 4, he explained how a planted seed can gradually grow and eventually turn into a harvest. Whether you’re aware of it or not, your life is one big garden that you are responsible for tending. Are you thinking about what seeds you are planting in your garden? What kind of seeds are you planting at your workplace, in your children, in your marriage, in your friendships, in your spiritual life? Are they good seeds? With intentionality and God’s help, we can plant good seeds in our lives and in the lives of others. We can then expect to reap a harvest that benefits us and glorifies God!
Everything starts in seed form, and once planted, a seed produces something.
1. You reap what you sow
You will reap what you sow. A farmer would never plant cucumber seeds and hope to harvest strawberries. A farmer would never plant bean seeds and expect to harvest corn. In the same way, the seeds we plant will determine the harvest we get.
Seeds can include your thoughts, your words, your actions, your choices.
“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.”
Are you allowing bad seeds to be sown in your life by others?
God is into seeds, and God is into growth. When you choose to sow a good seed, you are choosing to say yes to growth. Growth isn’t always comfortable, but the labor of sowing is worth the reward of the harvest.
Call to action
Take inventory of your life and the seeds you are sowing. Pull up any weeds (bad habits, thoughts, actions) that have been planted by bad seed, and name the seeds you will commit to intentionally sow for the harvest you want.

When you made a decision to follow Jesus, that was a private moment between you & God, but baptism is where you get to go public with your faith, letting the world know that you are fully devoted!
