Planting Seeds

A couple of weeks ago Raeca planted wildflowers in a couple of little pots and while we were sitting on the deck doing the planting I couldn’t help but wonder what kind of seeds I am planting now.

Am I planting seeds of encouragement, forgiveness and love or impatience, anger and fear?

I know from experience that the seeds I plant are going to result in what grows. If I plant anger, anger will spring up.

Not even just in Raeca, but my own life as well.

Bitterness and jealousy verses grace and compassion.

Donโ€™t be misledโ€”you cannot mock the justice of God.
You will always harvest what you plant.
Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature.
But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit.

Galatians 6:7-8

I am trying to make a conscious effort to plant only seeds that I want to harvest, it’s a lot of work each day, but the benefits are worth it.

How about you, what kind of seeds are you planting?

Hi Friend, I would love for you to sign up for my seasonal-ish newsletter! I would love to send it monthly but I feel like in this season of my life that will probably not happen but I would like to commit to sending one out at least every three months.

In the newsletter you can expect little (or big!) life updates, what I've been reading in the Bible, and all sorts of resources I've been loving and lessons God has been teaching me.
