Heart Harvest

"Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.” Luke 6:38

Yesterday I bought some seeds for the making of a homegrown organic vegetable garden. I'd also like to, in the near future, obtain myself some egg laying chickens. My efforts to grow food and eggs is to be a little more self sustaining, organic, and save some money as well. I know that the garden must be prepared first, the soil turned and fertilized, seed sown and watered. Then I must protect my garden as it grows (we've got a fiercely huge Jack rabbit living in our yard!). But, when the time is right I will eat the fruit of my labors.

The same is true with our lives. We must sow liberally into others. We make a good investment out of genuine care and love, but we obtain the promise of God to reap in return what we have sown. The difference is, God wants to be our sustenance-total dependence of Him.

I pray God would water every good seed sown in your heart today. That He would spare no reserve of the nutrients of Care, Compassion and Genuine Love. He has great plans to cultivate an enormous Harvest of Heart in you! ~Nicoleimage
