I see in this passage two components that make for a return to a more “fruitful” world. During days of strife, we look to changes in the conditions of our lives to provide a balm. We think of an election, a vaccine, a new conversation on race as rain from heaven that “watered the earth” and will relieve the pain we feel in our lives. However, I also read in this a second step that is necessary. One must “sow” the earth to be availed by these gifts. I reflect on this in our society, we have great reason to be hopeful, for rain is on the horizon, but have we sowed the earth enough to receive these gifts?
