The Seed

Plant the seed of encouragement in the fertile ground of a person's life, and it will grow into magnificent accomplishments.

Anyone has the capacity to do great things, yet far too few know it or believe it. No matter how fertile the ground may be, if no seed is planted, nothing will grow.

How many lives have been wasted in misery and destruction because they never received even the smallest seed of positive encouragement?

A seed is tiny. Yet when it is planted in the right place, at the right time and nurtured with care, that tiny seed can grow into an abundant harvest.

Think of the lives around you where the seed of encouragement can take root and grow. Think of the difference you can make when you encourage yourself and when you offer your encouragement to others. Think of the seeds that you have the opportunity to plant. Spread the seeds of encouragement far and wide, and delight in the bountiful harvest that they will surely bring.

- Ralph Marston
