Can you become a gardener?
We’ve been talking about intentionally planting seeds for the past two days. In writing yesterday about how to be more intentional in your seed planting, I got to thinking about a couple people I’ve known who seemed to plant seeds everywhere they went.
I hope you know the kind of person I am talking about. We are better because we spent time with them. Their lives seem to be one continuous journey of planting seeds.
The curious thing is that they are not intentionally planting each individual seed, but instead they intentionally live as farmers or gardeners. Some people are able to intentionally live, and this intentional living allows them to plant seeds without focusing on it. They are gardeners, not just planters.
For the rest of this week, I’ll be asking myself a few questions:
Maybe I could grow into a great gardener, maybe not, but it seems like the effort will make me a better leader.
Do good and be well,
