the combine drove into the bean field. the kids watching. they venture close. they watch as the dust begins to rise and the harvest begins. they watch with wonder as the machine passes over the rows of beans and leaves only small stalks in their place. the things the farmer planted ~ the things he sowed ~ well, it's time to reap.
and she asked "what is the need in your life? and based on that need what seed are you going to sow?" seed bears its own plants. it produces its own. what are the things you are believing for? what are the things you need? sow into those things. plant those things in the lives of others. the seeds of what you need will produce the things you need.
so what do you need? is it your finances? sow into what you need. give to someone who needs it even more then you and watch what God can do. is it food? are you worried about where dinner is coming from? bless what you have and give some to someone who is hungrier then you. is it friendship? extend your love, your life, your friendship and watch what He can do. you are His child. how He loves to bless you and provide for you. will you let Him?
because only when the seed is planted can it produce fruit. if you hold it in your hand it can do very little for you. if you grip it tightly, too afraid to let go, God can never turn it into the things you need. but if you sow your seed, if you plant it instead of hold it ~ He can fill you to the full. He can fill you to overflowing. you will reap far more then you sowed. but you have to choose to let the seed go.
