You reap what you sow… who’s farming our fields now?
Yet some people go through life as just a weed, growing on the side of the road. Any fruit bared taken by whoever whenever. Or trampled away by life itself. Too often they are content to sit with their hand out, only using what is given and never giving anything in return.
Some don’t even care. They are often bitter at the world and waste away, mad that their life wasn’t better, but unwilling to make any effort to make it so.
Are we givers, or takers, or just don’t care?
I think as conservatives we must plant good seeds and tend them wisely so they bare good fruit. Not take liberally of whatever’s available. If we are wise and work our reward will be in sharing the harvest in it’s own time.
One can take away until nothing is left to take. And without the planters of good seeds there is no future harvest. Stealing away the harvest from those that tilled and sewed only leads to a future of want. It frustrates the good heart and causes it to lose the desire to plant the required amount. Soon little seed is left for growth and harvest in the future.
I think congress is beginning to harvest what hasn’t been planted, and in doing so they are taking the good seed and leaving nothing to sow.
It would be wise to think about the future and protect the seed that assures a harvest yet to come.
