One day I started to notice some green in the pot. Upon closer examination, these were little impatiens. There is a big impatiens plant next to it and the seeds blew from the big plant into the pot where my dead geranium was. Look - the impatiens are taking over the pot, bringing it back to a thing of beauty:
We have the ability to "blow over" seeds into the lives of others. Seeds of kindness, comfort, encouragement etc. We can use our smiles, kind words, listening ears and share of God's love which is in our hearts to overflow seeds into others. We may know someone who may appear as this plant did - barren, or empty. The seeds of God's grace can transform dry soil into a thing of beauty.
Proverbs 11:24 tells us "There is one who scatters, yet increases more... The generous soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself."
Proverbs 22:9 - "He who has a generous eye will be blessed."
This is related to the concept of it is more blessed to give than to receive. When we open our eyes around us and scatter seeds of joy and kindness and water with love and encouragement, we will be a blessing and in turn be blessed and refreshed ourselves.
