Everyone has a seed

19 September 2013, 10:09

Everyone in this world receive a seed every day! The seed is in the form of time or relationships or even a pay check every month. It’s up to us to choose what to do with our seeds. Every working person receives a ‘small miracle’ in the bank account at the end of the month in the form of a salary!

Each day is a seed

Each day we wake up to a clean new day. We have 24 hours each day. It’s our choice to sow the time so that we can benefit in the future, or to squander it now. Invest your time wisely. The Bible talks about making use of every opportunity and also the sons of Issachar. The younger you are the bigger your time seed. Often people above 50yrs complain and say ‘I wish I still have more time.’

Time is a seed

Time is the only seed that you get for doing nothing. Just for being born you get time! Give two people 10 years’ time and you will see how different they use their time. In 5 years’ time a person can rise from nothing to someone, and another can just make it, or even sink himself. What are you doing with your 365 days this year? How are you investing your time? If you do nothing with your time, you will reap nothing. Sow your time wisely!

Relationships are seeds

The relationships you have today, it can be a relative, spouse, friends, workmates or just neighbours are your seeds. Nurture them so that they grow and you will reap a harvest in the future. Do not squander or abuse the opportunities you have today to connect with people.  And watch out for the bad seeds of weeds in the relationship. Get rid of them before they hit the ground! Otherwise if you let them grow it will hurt to uproot them or/and they may produce a bad harvest.

Your pay is a seed

The pay we receive each month is a seed. It is up to use to choose how much of this seed we will used up.  If you use all, you aint gonna sow anything. But if you choose to sow some of it, you will reap a harvest in the future.

So, we all have seeds

Therefore no one can say ‘I don’t have a seed.’ We all have seeds. It might not be what you really want, but my advice is, just sow what you have. Who know you may end reaping what you really want. Take every day as an opportunity to sow.

Remember, there is a harvest for every sowing. No sowing, no harvest. Bad sowing gives bad harvest. Good sowing gives good harvest.

Sow today and harvest tomorrow!
