It’s that time of year around here. Time to plant gardens. And after our exceedingly difficult winter here in the Northern Plains, the idea of gardening is a welcome one indeed!
The thing about gardening, is that I cannot plant corn one day and eat it the next.
It takes time…and patience…
Two things that I don’t have a lot of.
But God promises that there will be a harvest, if we don’t give up.
“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9 NIV)
When I plant that corn in my garden, I can count on a harvest someday. Providing I have the right conditions for growth:
- Good soil
- Good seed
- Good sun
- Good moisture
These are elementary concepts when it comes to gardening, but they apply in our lives as well. They apply in our workplace calling.
Have you been sowing seeds of doing good? Have you been sowing into your your workplace calling career? Into the hearts of co-workers? Have you been working hard, but have not yet seen the fruits of your labor?
If you have, take heart-God promises a harvest.
Don’t give up hope. Keep on sowing. Apply the patience and time needed for the seeds to grow into a harvest.
God will not disappoint you. Ever.
