Sowing the good seed of God can often be a painful and sorrow-filled experience! People reject, get defensive or angry, insult, and hurt. There are many negative reactions to truth! Unfortunately!
I have found myself, many times, grieving over people who refuse to listen to the truth.
I like this scripture though because it reminds us that though there is pain involved in the sowing there will always be joy with the harvest! And there WILL be a harvest! Take heart, dear one, keep sowing and scattering seed, the Lord will not let your work be for nothing. He will, when the time is right, let you bring in that harvest that you have so faithfully sown in hope!
May we not lose hope but press on toward the goal! Amen.
