It Has to Start Somewhere

While we were enjoying our first fresh green beans with new potatoes (and squash and of course cornbread), Eddie said, "I sure am glad I planted those green beans."  I sat there thinking and got so tickled I couldn't eat.  Eddie began to laugh and said he realized I had picked the green beans, snapped them, washed them, and then cooked them, but he laughingly said, "It has to start somewhere."  He is exactly right.

The sowing of the seed of God's Word has to start somewhere.  Are you willing to sow the seed and let someone else water?  Are you willing to water what someone else has sown?  God may call us to sow one time and water the next or lay the foundation this time and build the next.  Let's just be available and willing to let God use us and then He will make things grow.

In 1 Corinthians 3:6, Paul said. "I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow."

Is God calling you to plant some seed in someone's life?  Is He calling you to water what has been sown?  What is your answer?


  1. I can see you laughing & then Eddie commenting! He is so right & you put a perfect devotional together. Talk about 'food' for thought! I needed this devotion tonight! Thanks Pat Henson
