Instead of turning on the computer and delving into my vast emails I now receive daily, I decided to jump right into a new study about the parables of Jesus. My mind was distracted about this situation so I did a quick prayer to stay focused. I had to read the lesson out loud to keep my mind from straying.
The lesson was so good and provided me peace of mind. It was about dirt. I found my answers in dirt. The parable was about soil and the four different types. Shallow soil, rocky soil, thorny soil, and good soil.
I feel that I worked hard to create the good dirt. I worked hard to prepare the soil to build my business. I cultivated my seed (idea) and watched it grow. While the rocky soil produces a fast result because it skips the step of preparing the soil, the seed is close to the surface and grows fast. However, because it was not prepared the sun comes along and scorches the plant. The little plant is no more.
That is where I think I have the advantage over the rocky soil. I did not take any short cuts. So after reading the lesson, I was jumping for joy in the clouds like these little reindeer. Thanks for sticking with me.
