Plentiful Harvest

Plant the word in your heart
And follow the Son of Man
With thoughts or ideas
In following God’s plan.

Not in the hard soil
Eaten by a bird
But in prepared soil
So the Word is heard.

Not in rocky soil
Since it can’t take root
For it last a short time
And can’t grow fruit.

But in good soil
Where worries stop
And ideas develop 
To produce a good crop.

So share with others
Letting God do the rest
Since the Father 
Knows what is best!

Poem by Mark Shields – © 02-17-2022Inspired by “Plentiful Harvest

Thought – Jesus speaks in parables so listeners focus in on, retain and absorb the wonderful words of God. In the parable of the sower, the seeds are God’s words & the soil is the heart. The heart rich with God’s principles is most productive and leads to a bountiful harvest.

Music – A song by George Strait called I saw God Today emphasizes how we should stop and pay attention to the good things around us and be thankful. The photos used in the video were taken at a George Strait concert I went to.

    To produce a good crop.”
