above the ground
skimming the surface
never digging in
as opposed to
piercing the dirt
roots and shoot ever growing down and up
planted and solid
It’s a picture of how
the seed of God’s Word
is meant to be cultivated
Its effects powerful
causing you to flourish
Let the Seed of His Word

…humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.
– James 1:21 (NIV)
…In simple humility, let our gardener, God, landscape you with the Word, making a salvation-garden of your life.
– James 1:21 (MSG)
But blessed are those who trust in the Lord
and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.
They are like trees planted along a riverbank,
with roots that reach deep into the water.
Such trees are not bothered by the heat
or worried by long months of drought.
Their leaves stay green,
and they never stop producing fruit.
– Jeremiah 17:7-8 (NLT)
Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.
– Psalm 1:1-3 (NLT)
