Reading: Mark 4: 30-34
As a child, I remember filling a Styrofoam cup with soil, planting seeds, watering them, and giving them to my mother for Mother’s Day. We would take weeks to nurture the seeds and watch them grow into thriving marigolds.
With proper attention, the right light and water, seeds will grow up into thriving, strong plants. Others will be able to use it for shelter, shade, and nourishment.
We plant spiritual seeds, too, through our actions, words, or insights. We may share a kind word to a co-worker, talk about our faith or teach about God through Sunday School or church activities. We may not see results right away, but our loving God nurtures seeds in that person and allows them to grow and mature.
Sow the seeds of life and wait upon the Great Gardner to take care of them. They may be small, but will turn into mighty and great plants and flowers! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit
