I Go Back to the Seed Sown

I love Psalm 97:11 and the imagery there in the NASB translation: “Light is sown like a seed for the righteous and gladness on the upright in heart.” It’s different from the NIV which says,”Light is shed upon the righteous and joy on the upright in heart.” In both, the idea of shedding and sowing is more like the idea of scattering seed to take root. It’s such a nice image to remember.

I think of God planting seeds of light and joy in my heart that only grow and grow until they bear so much fruit that even others are blessed by the harvesting of it.
