Planting the Seed of Faith

Welcome! I’m over at 5 Minutes for Faith today talking about how the seed of faith gets planted in others. Here’s an excerpt of what you’ll find…
This summer, I have two healthy cherry tomato plants growing in my garden, despite the fact that I didn’t plant them and I’ve done nothing to make them grow.
                   
Long after they started to grow, my daughter heard me talking about these plants, and she innocently said, “I planted them.”
                                     
What?
With a shrug, she said, “I planted two tomatoes last year.”
Apparently, not knowing if they would grow, she took two tomatoes from last year’s plant and buried them. Not seeds, but whole tomatoes.
I thought the extreme temps and very little rain would be the end of them, but my husband started watering them and they continued to grow.

As I’ve been enjoying the fruit of their labor, I’ve been reminded of another seed that grows—the seed of faith.
Will you join me at 5 Minutes of Faith to read the rest of my devotion? I’d love to see you there!

In Christ,
Laura

  3. This post reminds me of the Lewis Revival in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland (1949). This truth was clearly revealed and demonstrated through those who planted, those who watered, and those who reaped... the result: revival came to the islands of Scotland as a result.
