…like newborn babies [you should] long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may be nurtured and grow in respect to salvation [its ultimate fulfillment], 1 Peter 2:2

Nurturing Seeds
Whenever we have opportunity to do so, we should be prepared to nurture the spiritual seeds we plant.  In the physical, seeds benefit from some type of nurturing. ie: tender loving care, be it tending the earth or providing nourishment, nurturing helps seeds grow.  In the spiritual, we won’t always have the ability to nurture seeds we plant, but if we do we need to be prepared to do so.
All that might be needed is a scripture verse or a word of encouragement.  Perhaps a listening ear or hug or helping hand.  We don’t want to smother the seeds we plant with too much intervention, but we do want to always be watchful and alert to be available for nurturing if it is needed.

He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you love Me?” And he said to Him, “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.” Jesus said to him, “Feed My sheep.   John 21:17
