And sow fields and plant vineyards, That they may yield a fruitful harvest.
-Vineyards were a symbol of economic activity & measure of value; just like livestock keeping, fishing, wheat & olive oil farming, carpentry & masonry which were common in the Bible. Grapes were sold as fruits for food & wine sold in households & functions like weddings. Wine was measured in baths; where 1 bath is equivalent to 5.8 gallons now, see Isaiah 5:10.
-Therefore, vineyards represent work; where the Psalmist recognizes Gods input in our success. He provides rain that our harvest may be bountiful/ fruitful. Rain is a common symbol of Gods blessings; which implies productivity. Lastly, work is a representation of a person’s calling or area of interest. God directs our sowing that we may have good success.
We give You thanks Lord; for You are good & Your mercy endures forever. Direct the unemployed, those who are yet to start business, start-ups, those who are struggling in employment & business; with Your powerful hand. May Your success be evident in all we do & the economy of our country. Thank You for Your loving kindness & goodness in our lives. Amen
