Seed to Harvest by Shawna DeForest Morby Summary
Do you ever wonder why the Bible uses so many references to seeds, plants, and harvest? Or why the first home for humanity was a garden? Does the abundance of foliage all around us perhaps have some wisdom from our maker entwined within its roots? When we compare our lives to the life cycle of plants, we can see similarities that allow us to relate, and in that relationship, there is wisdom and answers. Our world is surrounded by plant life in various stages of their life cycle, from seed form to harvest. There's no mistake that God first created a garden and had us work the ground. God's garden is the world around us! When we sit in the garden, not only are we blessed by God's colorful artistry, but we find wisdom for how to live our lives in abundance, producing fruit for God's harvest. As you read this book, you will discover God's love, his plan, and his purpose for you as you compare yourself to the seed, sprout, leaves, flowers, fruit, and harvest. You will also learn from God's divine design as we study the storms and pests that may hinder growth and stall or completely stop a potential harvest. How can we be prepared to weather the storms in our life? Is there something to be learned from the plants that have survived through drought, storms, and pests? You do not have to be a farmer or gardener to enjoy this book because everything we discuss is all around you! If your thumb isn't even the faintest bit of green you can still gain great wisdom from this book. God does not call the qualified but qualifies the called and that is you! Believe it or not, you are valuable. You are important in God's massive design, and he wants your help with the harvest. This book dives deep into the promises of God and how he planted you specifically with a purpose to enact change in this world, whether big or small, it's all impactful and so are you. 2
