Sowing is not always glamorous, but reaping is a partnership with the one who sowed. We are not in competition, but a partnership for the kingdom of God. We rejoice together, both those who sow and those who reap.
Did you know that originally, Church of Christ ministers were referred to as Evangelists? Evangelists, from the Greek word euangelion (εὐαγγέλιον if you want to get really Greek-nerdy) which stems from the Greek word meaning "good" (εὔ) and the verb meaning "I bring [a message]" (ἀγγέλλω).
