Anyone who plants a seed - of any kind - has hope. Hope that it will germinate, grow, and prove fruitful.
Whether that seed is mustard and cress, producing a crop in a few days, or a tree that doesn't reach maturity for decades, there is hope in the planter. No-one plants a seed and rejoices if it doesn't grow.
So what sort of seeds are you planting, both literal and metaphorical? Do they all anticipate a quick yield, or are you planting things that you hope will prove fruitful way in the future? Are you prepared to nurture the seedlings for as long as it takes?
