We are nothing without God. There is no question that God is the reason behind all that we are. We can claim no glory over for what we do. In verse 7 this point is made clear, So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. We must be faithful to accept and follow His leading in our lives, but He is the reason for the growth. Verse 8 goes on to talk about purpose, The man who plants and the man who waters have one purpose, and each will be rewarded according to his own labor. We must remember that God created us uniquely. We must use the gifts He has given us and leverage it against the gifts He has given to others. As much as I would love to sing like and angel, I will never sound like Sarah Munsell… that would just be weird!
