Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

— 2 Corinthians 9:6

1 Corinthians 3;5-9,Who do you think Paul is, anyway? Or Apollos, for that matter? Servants, both of us - servants who waited on you as you gradually learned to entrust your lives to our mutual Master. We each carried out our servant assignment. I planted the seed, Apollos watered the plants, but God made you grow. 7 It's not the one who plants or the one who waters who is at the center of this process but God, who makes things grow.”

in verses like this Paul reminds Christians that some are called to sow seeds, others do a little watering but it is God who ultimately makes the crops grow.

Now a lot of believers protest that they do not have the gift of evangelism. But sowing seeds is not all about words it is about giving back to others what you can using the talents you do have.

God is the gardener

He tends His crops

Gives them their water

Shines down the Son

Lovingly watches over them

Til the harvest is done

God tells us to sow the seeds

Sow the seeds, sow the seeds

God tells us to sow the seeds

Sow the seeds, sow the seeds

He'll do the rest
