What Are You Planting?
By Greg Sanders

Proverbs 11:30 The seeds of good deeds become a tree of life; a wise person wins friends.

Gardening is becoming a very popular past time. It is sort of trendy for even younger people to have a garden in their back yard or down the street in a community garden. A friend of mine told me that he has a garden that produces fruit and vegetables year round. He goes to harvest what he wants every week. He never has to till it, plant it, nurture it, or keep the animals out of it. His garden is found at his local Wal-Mart. That is my kind of gardening.

Proverbs 11:30 reminds us that every day we are planting seeds by the deeds that we do. We may be planting seeds that will bring forth good things or we may be planting seeds that will eventually produce a harvest of disaster. Sometimes it may seem like the person planting evil deeds is going unpunished and the person planting good deeds is going unrewarded. You must remember that if you plant an oak tree or a potato, the ground looks the same for a season. However, eventually what you planted will be evidenced. The same is true for you. You may not see the results of what you plant today, but someday everyone will see.

Today’s Challenge: Examine what you have been planting. Everyone plants many seeds every day and those seeds will one day germinate and produce a harvest. Do you look forward with excitement or with dread regarding the seeds you have sown? Do your best today to plant good seeds with good deeds that will bring glory and honor to God.
