Plant in the Right Season
“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted” (Ecclesiastes 3:1-2)
Today’s Morsel: If you have ever purchased a packet of seeds (whether flower, vegetable, etc.) it tells you on the back of the packet when is the best time to plant the seeds, how deep you should plant them, and the place they should be planted. The old adage of sowing and reaping, and reaping what you sow, is nothing new. Solomon states that to everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven. He says that there is a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted. If we are wise, we will follow the instructions if we want a harvest. How much seed (the word of God) would you say has been wasted because people do not know the season? What about you? Do you know the season and the time to plant God’s word? It is up to the sower to know the right season.
Sing: Keep on casting your bread upon the water, soon it's going to come back home on every wave. Keep on casting your bread upon the water, soon it's going to come back home on every wave. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, soon it's gonna come back home on every wave.
Thought For Today: The sower must always know the right season to sow. (Parker)
