While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. (Genesis 8:22)

Behold, varieties of fruits of the land. They were yesterday's seeds. Some were seeds of varieties of good fruits, others were seeds of bad fruits. Some seeds succeeded and bring forth their kind of fruits, while the others didn't make it.

Of the fruits of the land, humans and other creatures shall eat. Those fruits that give good nourishment and bring forth wellness, save their seeds for they shall be greatly multiplied. The rest of the seeds, leave them to the creatures of field and the fowls of the air; their fruits shall satisfy them.

The seasons have their own varieties of fruits. No matter how good a variety of fruit is, it only can last for a season. Different creatures will take some shares of the fruits. The ground too will take its share; for whatever is left unconsumed will rot away fertilizing the ground. In God's economy nothing is left wasted nor unutilized. Each season is provided with different varieties of fruits suited to each season's conditions. Therefore, utilize timely the season's fruits without lack nor waste; for they will be gone one way or the other when the season ends.

Yet whether a fruit's meat is consumed or rots away, its seed remains. A seed is an encapsulation of the future. What is sown today will become the harvest of tomorrow. Thus, make sure to plant for the future. The fruits' seeds are for tomorrow's blessings. Find and secure a suitable ground for each variety and determine when is the soonest right time for each kind of seed to be planted, and then plant accordingly.


If you walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them; then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time: and you shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely. And I will give peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land. (Leviticus 26:3-6)

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law does he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he does shall prosper. (Psalms 1:1-3)
