So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labor. For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building.
–1 Corinthians 3:7-9
The kind words you say today do matter.
So does the one minute conversation you had with someone on the bus when you told them of how God had changed your life.
How about that time you stopped to give a homeless man some food?
And the scripture card you sent to your neighbor when they were in the hospital—did that matter?
As God continually works in the lives of people, every seed of belief and faith in Him that is planted within their hearts is important.
Every drop of water that falls on those seeds is important, as well.
When someone comes to saving faith in God and His Son, Jesus, they can often point to investments made in their lives by other people–God’s servants–as they planted seeds and watered them.
It is God that makes the seed grow.
Our part in spreading the truth of His love matters.
It matters for eternity.
