You don’t need diplomas to work for the Lord,
Nor do you have to study abroad.
For you can be sowing his life-giving seed
Whether by word or whether by deed –
By being available, showing you care,
Coming alongside ready to share.
The love of a Father, the love that will cherish
For he is not willing that any should perish.
It may be a kindness or passing remark,
It may be a prayer to banish the dark.
Whatever it is, the seed will be sown –
Another will water until it is grown.
And then there’s a harvest another will reap,
Fruit for the Father to gather and keep.
So don’t be discouraged, his spirit will lead.
There’s a future in sowing the seed.
One day in heaven someone will start,
“Oh thank you for sowing the seed in my heart –
The hug that you gave in my moment of fear,
If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be here”.
