“I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase." 1 Cor. 3:6
My little garden has been very fruitful this year. We've given away tomatos to family and God's Storehouse. Last year ... not so much. The truth is I just plant them but have very little to do with how fruitful they are. It's God who gives the increase.
Sometimes we get the idea that we can make things increase, like attendance in church. Don't get me wrong; we certainly have a part in the growth of the church. But the truth is like my tomatos; it's God who gives the increase.
Let us be faithful to plant. Like the sower in the parable, we should plant whereever we go. But let us not be weary in well doing because in due season GOD will reap a harvest... if we do not lose heart.
Blessings, Pastor Ron
