After you’ve prepared your soil and planted your seeds, there’s still lots of work to do in your garden. A garden requires constant care and attention. You need to do all of the following:
Set a watering schedule; Pull weeds regularly, or crabgrass and all kinds of unwelcome weeds will sprout up; Prune trees, shrubs, and bushes; Cut away dead or overgrown branches or stems; Add fertilizer; Check to see how the plants are growing and take corrective action if necessary.
Just as a garden needs constant tending, so do your goals and dreams. Make sure that you take the action necessary to achieve your goals on a continuous basis. It’s the only way you’ll get your goals to bear fruit.Contemporary Reading
The Garden As A Metaphor For Life by Marelisa Fabrega
I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and each will receive wages according to their own labor. For we are God’s coworkers, working together; you are God’s field, God’s building.Scripture Reading
