planting season

There is a time to plant and a time to harvest, every farmer whether professional or hobbyist knows the importance of preparation. The soil has to be prepared to receive the seed or seedlings for the greatest growth potential. Some plants grow well in a group setting like beans, broccoli, and cauliflower. Then there are those that don’t grow well together like chives, garlic and leeks. Some are beneficial to the overall garden like thyme and sage, while others help control bugs like squash, oregano and spinach.

It is necessary to understand when to plant, according to the time of year and where you reside; for example planting season in Florida which is zone 9 is not the same for Tennessesse which is zone 7. As you can see there is more involved in producing a good crop than just digging a hole and dropping in a seed. The process of planting requires care and patience. Attention must also be given to seed selection, some regions are better than others for certain types of seeds.

The word of God teaches us we don’t all have the same job to do as soldiers in the fight against the sin in this world. For some the call is to encourage, some to teach, others to preach, some are called to hospitality, and some are called to be peacemakers. Every child of God has a gift and a call to service for the good of others. We are to plant seeds of love, kindness, understanding, empathy, compassion, and patience.

When the love of God demonstrated to us by Jesus the Christ is reflected to the world, change will be experienced in the lives of men and women through the working of the Holy Spirit. The chains of worldly habits will began to fall off and captives will be freed. Everyone who has accepted the commission of Christ must be a seed planter, we must be ready to drop our seeds in whoever we come in contact with; we are never off duty.

Soon the time for planting will be over and the time of harvest will come, the reapers will gather the good crops into the Master’s barn and the bad will be gathered together for burning. We are admonished to work while it is day, for the night is coming when no man can work.
