Bradley, a farmer, and Broderick, a banker, were best friends.

?

After the annual autumn harvest, Bradley visited Broderick at the bank to deposit the money he had earned from the sale of his crops. Bradley deposited $50,000 into his checking account.

?

“I see that you had a successful growing season,” Broderick told his friend.

?

“Yes, the Lord was certainly good to me this year!,” Bradley beamed. “I had the right combination of rain, sunshine and hard work. Plus, before I planted my crops, I planted another kind of seed.”

?

“What kind of seed was that,?” asked Broderick.

?

“I set a goal of the amount of money I wanted to sell my harvest for,” Bradley smiled. “And I utilized plenty of daily declarations of faith during the process.”

?

“You know, it’s amazing how this crop growing process works,’ Broderick said. “You plant the seed in the earth and, after a few months, you reap hundreds or thousands of times more than you sow.”

?

“It seems like a miracle to me, too,” Bradley grinned. “But although I’m thrilled with the concept of reaping more than I sow, I’m also keenly aware of the weed pulling that makes up a major part of the process. On some days, it seems like I do more of the work than God does. I think weed killing is one of the parts of the job I enjoy the most.

?

“God expects you to do your part in the partnership,” said Broderick. “And if you know what I mean, God knows that in order for our lives to be productive and fruitful, the weeds of sin must be pulled from our lives each day.”

?

“I know exactly what you mean, Old Friend,” said Bradley “I’ve been farming for almost 40 years, and it only took me a couple of years to learn that valuable lesson, both in the field and in my life.

?

“Something else that’s interesting to me that the law of sowing and reaping will apply equally to any crop I plant. One little seed of corn becomes many ears of corn on the cob for my family to eat. The key is to always sow the right kinds of seeds.”

?

“I’ve made an observation about this seed sowing principle, too,” said Broderick. “Everything we say, and everything we do is a seed we sow into the lives of others. And whatever we sow, good or bad, will result in a gigantic harvest in our own lives, as well as the lives into which these seeds are sown.”

?

“And these kinds of seeds are always in season,” chuckled Bradley.
