In a nutshell...

I would imagine that thousands of squirrels have buried nuts and forgot where they had hid them and in result mistakingly planted millions of trees. Similarly we may be unaware of our own actions and the results of our behaviour. For instance we may underestimate the impact our words have on the lives of those we teach.

Our words must not be negative for this act is like casting seeds of destruction. Instead our dialogue must be intentional and provide encouragement. We 'Sow to Harvest' and this implies the deliberate act of enabling students to flourish. Unfortunately we may never see the return on our investment.
I assure you, however, the seeds that you plant can become trees that develop branches to provide shade for those needing rest.
