Planting a seed is a risk.
We are not sure that it will grow.
We are not sure that it will not be a diseased crop.
We are not sure some wild creature will not attack it when we are not looking.
Nonetheless, we have to plant those seeds that we have in our hands. Chances are, that a good number will grow and ripen for harvest.
We must take the time to till our ground, plant, and water and be patient for the God of Harvest to increase our bounty. Except we plant, he has nothing to work on.
