Greetings dear friends and family,
“Seeds Of The Heart: Growing In Grace” was the theme at a conference I attended recently.
The bible study that day was based on The Parable of the Sower. (Matthew 13:1-9) On the handout that I brought home were questions to ponder. One of them was How would you describe your “soil” today? in other words, your heart.
So how would you describe your heart and what is growing there? Is your heart in need of cultivating? Are the good seeds of trust, love, kindness, hope, and patience growing there or are the weeds of anger, greed, fear, doubt, and hatred growing wild?
We need to look into our hearts. We need to rid our hearts of the weeds that are choking out the good seeds. We need to turn to the Sower, who tends to our hearts and plants good seeds there.
So today, take some time with our Creator, the Sower of good seeds. Take time to read his Word and grow in his cultivating love. Love that prepares our hearts to grow good and productive seeds.
Other seeds fell on good soil and brought forth grain. Matthew 13:8a
Let us pray: Loving Creator, prepare the soil of our hearts to accept the good seeds that you plant there. Help us to see that we are to be good soil and produce abundantly for you. Walk with us as our Easter journey continues, helping us to grow in your grace and live in your love. In your name we pray. Amen.
Have a blessed week, growing in the garden of God.
With love and prayers,
