In nurturing your favorite herbs (i.e. basil, thyme, rosemary) you don’t just dig the soil and agitate the dirt far too long, otherwise you’re just making a big mess. Time will come when you should act on it and finally plant the seeds. Only then you will see the fruits of your labor.
Discipleship is like that. Don’t just think it. Don’t just scour the ground for prospects. Act on it, plant the seeds and see the harvest.
