We plant seeds that
one day will grow.
We water seeds already planted, knowing that
they hold future promise.
We lay foundations that will need further
We provide yeast that produces effects beyond
our capabilities. It may be incomplete,
but it is a beginning, a step along the way.
An opportunity for God’s grace to enter and
to do the rest.
We may never see the end results,
but that is the difference between the master builder
and the worker.
We are workers, not master builders,
ministers, not messiahs.
We are prophets of a future
not out own.
