… This is what the kingdom of heaven is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. … the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how … Mark 4:26-27 (NIV)
Come be a seed scatterer
A kingdom of heaven gatherer.
Sow seed into wide swaths of soil
For planting is the laborers toil.
Growth comes only by God’s hand
The sprouting seed not caused by man.
Who can know how a seed does grow
Where the wind of the Spirit might choose to blow?
When he comes may he find my sack
Empty of seeds upon my back.
Sown in soils where he has led
A harvest sprouting from entrusted seed heads.
