Daily Devotional Rev. Johnnie Flakes,III - November 08, 2007

Good morning,

Our devotion for today comes from Galatians 6:7 "People harvest only what they plant."  This morning I encourage you to  think for a moment of your heart as a greenhouse.  Your heart, like a greenhouse, has to be managed. 

Consider this morning, and throughout today, your thoughts as seed.  Some thoughts become flowers.  Others become weeds.  Sow seeds of hope on your job, in school, church, business, military, and marriage and enjoy optimism.  Sow seeds of doubt and expect insecurity.

The proof is everywhere you look. Ever wonder why some people have the Teflon capacity to resist negativism on the job, school, church, military, community, and business and remain patient, optimistic, hopeful and forgiving?  Could it be that they have a personal relationship with God through Jesus the Christ empowered by the Holy Spirit and they have diligently sown seeds of goodness and are enjoying the harvest?

Ever wonder why others have such a sour outlook? Such a gloomy attitude?  You will, too, if you lack spiritual growth/maturity and if your heart is a greenhouse of weeds and thorns. 

What kind of seeds are you sowing on your job, in school, church, military, community and family? 

Have a blessed planting day!

Your brother in Christ,
J. H. Flakes, III
