Sowing and Reaping

may we be the best seed there is to sow
may we sow our talents
and our skills
may we sow grace
and forgiveness
may we sow our dreams
and our longing
may we sow sunrises
and broken bread
may we sow stories
and adventures
may we sow the whole of our faith
and the first moments of belief
may we sow meeting places
and moment of prayer
may we sow baskets of fish
and loaves for everyone
may we sow pearls of great price
and mustard seeds too
may we sow patience
and generosity
may we sow the future
and all our tomorrows
may we sow for the long term
and live in that promise

and when the thistles creep in
may we still sow

A nice wee meditation from Mucky Paws based around the Parable of the Sower

A reminder that we should always give the best of what we are and what we have in the service of the kingdom of God.

I am very impatient by nature. I want things to happen now. I want them to change now. I want results now!

So the challenge for me in this moment is to “sow for the long term and live in that promise” despite all the thistles which cover the soil.
