Scripture Pick: What Do We Have In Common With Plants?

Proverbs 31:16 ~ “ She Considereth a field and buyeth it with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.”

A woman that looks to the Heavenly Father for guidance on how to grow. How far apart and how deep in the soil to place the seeds. How to water and wash the plants like our Spirit is. She is aware of her investment of the obligations of time, financial and physical. She welcomes commitment and responsibility. From the direction of God and her listening, she gains the confidence to get her hands dirty. Appreciating the time that it takes to water, to prune and the patience of waiting for the vineyard to grow.

We are much like a garden. God places our seed perfectly where it should be. We need nutrients and water to live. We are given room to grow and flourish like a plant when we have followed in line or order with God.
