This would be a good handout in doing a Visiting Teaching Conference too, because we can adapt this Parable to mean being vigilant in our preparations and in doing our Visiting Teaching, and what we put into our efforts, will depend on how fruitful or successful we are as Visiting Teachers. We can bring forth good fruit, even a hundredfold, or our seeds of effort could fall by the way side or into stony places that didn't take root. I think you can see what I mean and how to apply the story.
Here are two of the same seed packet templates, with the exception that one has the scoring and folding lines on it and one does not. I prefer to not have the folding lines, but others may want or need them to prepare the packets. Just score with a scorer, or toothpic or pen that is out of ink, and that makes it easier to fold. Then fold and use a glue stick or glue runner to seal the bottom and side edge of the packet. NEXT: Add your seeds to the packet. NEXT: Seal the packet with glue stick or glue tape runner, with it being inside of the back side, so that the directions will show and be readable on the back. If you really want to get fancy, you can tie a piece of twine, or narrow ribbon around the packet with a bow, and there you have a cute handout.
