Planting Seeds

“What then is Apollos? What is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, as the Lord assigned to each. I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. He who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his wages according to his labor. For we are God's fellow workers. You are God's field, God's building.” (1 Corinthians 3:5-9 ESV)

I have always believed in planting seeds. Giving away Bibles and great Christian books. Engaging people with truth.

A few years ago, out of the blue, I got a call from an acquaintance that I had not heard from in over 30 years. She called to thank me for giving her a Bible . It turns out she accepted Christ, married a Christian man and had two wonderful Christian children.

We never know the eternal significance of the seeds we plant.

Be faithful and plant seeds. Someone else will water them. And God will make them grow.
