Planters Needed

Behold the sower went out to sow -- the sower sows the word.  (Mark 4:3,14 NASB)

   God is always on the lookout for planters.  Believers who are willing to take the word of God and cast it out freely trusting God to prepare the soil for its reception.  Just as important as the sowing is the watering.  A regular watering of the seed with prayer is vital in forming a good root system for the plant to stand on its own.  In due time through the convicting power of the Holy Spirit, a harvest takes place.

    I have a friend who loves to plant a garden.  Year after year he raises tomato plants from seeds through the winter, and transplants them in the spring.  Wally is in his 80's now, but still labors to plant his garden.  When asked why he does this, Wally says, "I just love to see things grow."  I have often benefited from his tomato patch.  There's nothing better than a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich.

   Where would the kingdom of God be today without the planters?  Are you willing to take your place as a planter?
