The story we explored in our Service was about a farmer planting seeds. He planted four seeds– one was in the hot sun, it wilted and died, one had no space to spread it’s roots, another was enveloped by another plant. The fourth seed did well because it had just the right spot, and just the right nourishment.
In the Bible there is a book called the Book of Psalms. These are poems and songs that were written thousands of years ago. Psalm 1 includes these words:
Happy are those…
who find joy in obeying the Law of the Lord…
They are like trees that grow beside a stream,
that bear fruit at the right time,
and whose leaves do not dry up
For Christians, Harvest is also about the Fruit of the Spirit—the good things that grow in our lives when they are rooted in God’s word.
What fruits of the spirit can you think of?
Which ones are growing in your lives? We’re going to be thinking about those questions in our assemblies next week in school.
