The Seven Verbs of Discipleship is a disciple making tool created by Justin Ulmer; it consists of seven principles that point to the ongoing actions of effective disciples of Jesus Christ.

The 4th Verb of Discipleship:  Plant
When you’re building a vineyard, you don’t want to plant mediocre vines, you want to plant the best vines.  The best vines come from the best seed.  The best seed we can ever plant in our hearts is the living and active word of God.

How is Planting an act of discipleship?
We plant God’s Word in our hearts by reading the Bible and spending unhurried time with God each day.  This simple act is vital to being a healthy disciple, and essential to our spiritual growth.  Do you need wisdom?  Read some of the Proverbs.  Do you want to learn to pray?  Spend some time in the Psalms.  Do you want to be more like Jesus?  Read one of the Gospels.  Do you want to grow your faith?  Read the Bible and do what it says.
