My yard is sprinkled with yellow! Perhaps some would say it actually looks pretty – but not really. It’s full of dandelions. Yet, a little girl could be very happy here as she picks a bouquet for her mother. Another could joy in cutting the greens before the blossoms come for a healthy side dish (not for me!).
From year to year those “pretty weeds” multiply as they turn to a fluffy seeded ball carried by the wind; only to produce more yellow! As I consider this, I wonder what kind of seeds are being carried by the winds in my own life to those around me. Are they seeds of love, goodness, kindness, encouragement, or just the opposite?
I never know how far God may take my seeds, but I want them to have a positive impact. I need the Lord’s help every day for this to happen and best thing I can do is to be in His word every day and to walk in the Spirit.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance, against such there is no law.” Gal. 5:22,23
We can do what we can to spread good seed, but then we have to leave the results up to God.
“So then neither is he that plants anything, neither is he that waters, but God that gives the increase.” I Cor. 3:7
