verse 7: So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.
These verses should be plastered everywhere in my brain. This is probably the number one reason I don’t act when I have an idea for helping someone, or giving something, or doing something for others: “It won’t really make a difference.” I forget, over and over, that God provides the increase. Only God provides it. He clearly wants us to be a part of the process, but we are not God. We are His servants. I have to remember to be content with planting seeds and watering. I do not have the power to make things grow.
Holy Father, thank you for this reminder now growing in my heart. I must not be afraid to plant or to water, knowing you will make things grow according to your will. Amen
