Planting seeds of truth!

1 Corinthians 3:6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.

[You can plant the seeds of truth, but only God can make them grow. When you share a truth with someone, they may hear it, or they may not. You or someone else may add to it, but, only God can make it actually grow in their mind. They will remember it when necessary].

1 Corinthians 3:7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.

[It is not important who plants the seed, or who adds to it (waters it), what is important is that God makes it grow, if it is His will. All the credit goes to God]!

1 Corinthians 3:8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.

[The one who plants and the one who waters are working together for the same purpose. If the truth grows by Gods will, both will receive a reward for their works. Have you ever listened to a truth from one pastor but you didn't quite get it, then you hear about the same truth from another pastor and then it all becomes clear? This is an example of two different teachers working together in the same body of Christ. Both of them will be rewarded for the same truth].

1 Corinthians 3:9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.

[God dwells in His own people who are workers for Him, not a building. Your body is the temple (a personal spiritual building) of God when you believe in Him. Ephesians 2:20-22, Hebrews 3:6, 1 Peter 2:5].

Don't be guilty of planting untruths. Plant seeds of truth only. Where does that truth come from? God's word. Acts 20:26-27.

When you learn a truth from God's word, it is meant to be shared with others; don't be selfish.

Matthew 5:15; Mark 4:21; Luke 11:33. That is what these verses are talking about. Don't hide God's truth.
