Reflection: Solomon,the wise, encourages us to keep planting. He encourages diligence and a recognition that we do not know which seeds will take root. Rather than, therefore, calling the act of planting worthless, he encourages us to keep going, keep planting.
Application: What, therefore, shall we do? Rather than contemplate the wind, which cannot be seen, or the sky whose vastness goes beyond our imaginations, we must keep doing the things God has set before us. Keep planting, keep working, keep going. For He will water the seeds, and He knows which seeds will take root.
Prayer: Jesus, remind us of Your faithfulness, Your provision, Your hand at work though we may not see it. Remind us that the Holy Spirit moves in ways we cannot understand. Encourage our hearts and minds that we may continue the work You have set before us. Help us keep pressing onward. In Your precious name, Amen.
