Soil and its texture are key determiners in how or if a seed sown is appropriately nurtured and cultivated. A seed planted in soil that is improperly prepared, tainted by extreme measures of cold or heat, or overwhelmed by too much water will fail to germinate correctly, ultimately forfeiting the purpose of production.
While seed sowing is essential to receiving a harvest, the composition of the soil in which the seed is being planted is of equal importance. When soil is too cold, a planted seed will develop haphazardly or fail to develop at all. If the soil is too hard, the seed cannot penetrate and take root in the ground, thus leaving the seed exposed to dangerous factors such as extreme weather conditions and pests. However, seeds that are planted during appropriate seasons in soil that is well cultivated produce the harvest for which it was intended.
Just as soil content affects its ability to retain proper nutrients that promote growth, investing your talents, expertise, and knowledge in avenues that are not apt to productivity will hinder the potential of a fruitful, well-meaning harvest. So, before you invest your time, money, or abilities into a special project, partnership, or business venture, seek godly guidance and wisdom and make sure the ground in which you are sowing is equipped to receive, nurture, cultivate, and produce a healthy harvest. As you sow seeds and evaluate the soil of others, don’t forget to cultivate your own ground ensuring it too is suitable for harvesting.
