Sowing a seed

As a child, I said very little. I wasn’t encouraged to think for myself, so I thought more than I said. Years on, I do things very differently. Sowing a seed is a thought we set in motion, a thought that will take root, possibly grow and blossom into something that takes place and bears fruit.

That thought should eventually have a much greater impact on that person’s life, but they won’t necessarily understand or know that at the time the seed has been planted. These thoughts tend to have to work themselves through. It should never be our intention to plant a thought to instil doubt.

We should merely give the other person an opportunity to work with a thought that we know will make his or her life significantly better. That is what we as parents should do.

  1. I agree with you. We shouldn’t be mischievous and plant the wrong thoughts in others. We should be helpful, but unfortunately society don’t work that way and people are evil and thoughtless.

    We should start with our children. Planting good, helpful thoughts in our children’s minds will help them go so far in life.

    1. Thanks Lisa. I agree not everyone will sow a seed so that they can help others, but you’re right we should teach our children to think in this way.

      To do that will make their adult lives so much easier.

  2. I appreciate this topic because sewing the right seed in one individual can affect so many people in a positive way.

    History has shown us what happens when the wrong seed is planted in a mind of shallow depth.
