"The point is this ... he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully." – 2 Corinthians 9:6 (RSV)
I recently visited the graveside of loved ones who were giants in the Christian faith. Rising atop their grave is a towering oak, a standing image of this couple who lived as oaks of righteousness. I noticed a single acorn atop their grave marker and then observed dozens more scattered about on the grass. These good people, in their lifetime, spread abundant seeds that continue to bear fruit and are towering oaks in the making.
Lord, thank You for people who lived as "oaks of righteousness, the standing of the Lord that He may be glorified." (Isaiah 61:3) Grow us to be towering trees that spread much good seed.
