Gardening lessons

Does a farmer always plow and never sow?
Is he forever cultivating the soil and never planting?
Does he not finally plant his seeds—
Is. 28:24

At some point the farmer has to stop getting ready to sow and get out there and get his hands dirty. Why is it easier to read books about evangelism, discuss strategies and plan campaigns than it is to have a personal conversation with a friend? Nothing grows until the seeds are in the ground.

Lord, help me to lovingly, wisely, and honestly sow seeds of grace.
