STOP AND THINK – Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant. (Robert Louis Stevenson, 19th century Scottish novelist)
We’re eager to see results, aren’t we? We impatiently wait to see what we’ve accomplished. But, of course, the harvest depends on what we planted in the first place. A lot of elements contribute to a good harvest, and some are beyond our control. But we are responsible for the planting. It’s a great analogy of life, so be careful to sow good seeds everywhere you can.
A man reaps what he sows. . . . Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:7, 9)
