10-year-old Sara was excited to participate in the competition for the tallest sunflower. She planted three sunflower seeds in a big pot, watered them regularly and waited for them to sprout. Which seed would turn into the tallest flower? Every day she checked, but nothing happened. She was quite disappointed and after two weeks, she forgot about the sunflowers and the competition.
A year later, there were three beautiful sunflowers radiating in the afternoon sun. The long forgotten seeds brought forth large, beautiful flowers which provided nectar for the bees.
Let us not become tired of doing good. At the right time we will gather a crop if we don’t give up.Galates 6:9
Sometimes we expect, just like little Sara, that our activities turn into instant results or resonate somehow. Paul encourages us to not get tired of doing good.
