I went out this morning to plant something in my flowerbed and discovered little bulbs popping up out of the ground all over the place. They had grown so much in just a few short years that the ground couldn’t contain them! So, I dug up that one little clump of bulbs and had handfuls of new bulbs just waiting to be planted throughout my flowerbeds. I spread those bulbs around. Next spring, I will have new little purple bulbs popping up all over my flowerbeds. I love seeing this!
This is how God’s economy works. What ever we plant, we will grow in even greater numbers. He has used this principle to spread his word down through the generations. He tells us that what we plant, we will harvest (Galatians 6:7). So, I was thinking, what am I planting each day?
- What do I plant in my heart and mind that will multiply and impact my life?
- What to I plant in the lives of others knowing that it will multiply? Will I be proud of what I see later?
I really want to see a field of beautiful words, deeds and actions pouring from my life and blessing others. If I want to look out one day and see that field of beauty, then I need to be planting that every single day.
