Today as I picked some rhubarb from my garden, I was struck by the thought that even though I did not plant this lovely vegetable, I was lucky enough to harvest it. And, like so many times before, the profound nature of this simple truth touched my heart. For indeed, there is a time to sow and a time to reap. Sometimes, it is we who do the sowing and sometimes (like today), we are the reaper.
If you are feeling discouraged today, take heart in this simple truth and keep sowing into your family and friends, into your Church or business or community, because one day there will be a harvest and it will be quite wonderful 👩🌾👨🌾
