Ready for a crop of love?

The start of a new year is often a time of introspection. In that case, it’s a good time to take measure of any unplowed ground in your heart.

A simple reason why we often lack a harvest of love in our lives is because much of our hearts remain unplowed territory. Hosea spoke directly to this issue:

“I said, ‘Plant the good seeds of righteousness,
    and you will harvest a crop of love.
Plow up the hard ground of your hearts,
    for now is the time to seek the Lord,
that he may come
    and shower righteousness upon you’.”
Hosea 10:12
Want a harvest of love in 2013? Plow up the hard ground of your heart, plant good seeds of righteousness, and seek the Lord.
