“The hard-working farmer ought to be the first to receive his share of the crops” (2 Timothy 2:6).
Perhaps no vocation portrays the life of faith as vividly as does farming. A farmer sows a seed with the faith that God will provide the necessary amount of both sunshine and rain. A farmer works hard; not just praying for a harvest but working for it, recognizing the symbiotic relationship between prayer and perspiring. A farmer waits patiently as maturity is being accomplished. Keep plowing ahead!
