Seeds of Faith

Most farmers know that not all the seeds they plant will germinate and provide part of the crop. In the Gospel according to Matthew Jesus taught the parable of the “Sower” alluding to our planting the seeds of the Gospel in others.

We may tell a lot of people about our faith in Jesus as the Son of God and get discouraged by how many do not seem to listen. Jesus encourages us not to despair or give up in doing good and spreading the good news. We know that a portion of the seed we sow will bear fruit. Some of the seed will produce a crop of ten fold, a hundred fold or even a thousand fold.

We like Jonny Appleseed may not ever see the harvest but others that come after us will. I have witnessed this in my own ministry.
