The late Dr. Hershel Hobbs told the story of a prominent judge in Dallas Texas who passed away. Because the judge was so well-known and respected, lots of flowers were sent to his funeral.
Following the funeral, a funeral home employee was loading the flowers on to a funeral home van to be taken to the cemetery for the burial service. A judge walked up and noticed how many flowers there were.
The judge said, “Judge so-and-so sure does have lots of flowers doesn’t he?”
The funeral home employee replied, “Yes sir but he’s been sowing the seeds for those flowers a long time.”
Every day we are sowing seeds. The Bible says we will reap what we have sown.
