Is there anybody out there that loves plants as much as I do? I don’t know exactly why I love them, but maybe it’s because they decorate the yard. Some produce flowers that bring a smile to my face. I even have a few orchids! At one time, I was afraid to grow orchids because I thought I would just kill them, but they are still alive and have produced more blooms! I think that the comparison between growing plants and bringing salvation to others is probably what I like the best. Jesus talked about planting seeds and harvesting souls. He explains that not all of the seeds you plant will produce fruit. Some of the seed may fall on rocky soil, or in the pathways and get eaten by birds, or among thorns, but it’s the seed that falls on the good soil that will eventually produce fruit. We must keep planting seeds, some will grow, but some won’t. If we want a harvest, we must continue to be diligent in our efforts. Keep spreading the word about Jesus, no one is a lost cause.
As for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it. He indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty.” Matthew 13:23
