Life on the Farm Day 6: Summary
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.
(Ecclesiastes 3:1, ESV)
And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food.
(Genesis 1:29, ESV)
Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains.
(James 5:7, ESV)
Throughout your Christian life, you will experience various seasons. There will be a time to plant, a time to grow, a time to harvest, and a time to rest. You have a choice in every season as to where you focus your attention. Are you focused on the world around you, allowing the distractions to overshadow what you are called to do? Or are you focused on planting the seeds of truth into those around you, using your time to grow in God’s Word, harvesting souls for Christ, and seeking time to rest in Him?
