Don’t relent in sowing seed continually

Don’t relent in sowing seed continually

SOWING seed is an important thing in every believer’s life whether the person is a Christian or not. This is because a person does not reap if he/she fails to sow a seed.

•Pastor Daramola

Therefore, it is Godly and must for people to sow seed so that they can reap. Galatians 6:7 says: “…A man reaps what he sows.” Let people sow so they can reap. A person needs to sow in three areas before he/she can be blessed: (i) Must sow in the house of God (ii) Must sow in his or her family including extended family (iii) Sow to outsider i.e. outside the family.

Let us examine the sowing of seeds to outsiders. If a person wants to sow seeds in a community and cannot give out money to go round the community but notice lack of water supply, the person can provide water for the community by putting in place a borehole, storage tank and generator to power the borehole. The person has ameliorated the suffering of the people.

The community people and heavenly kingdom will bless such a person generously. Colossians 1:9-10 says: “…And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way bearing fruit in every good work…” Similarly a person that provides bus service for church members from a certain point to the church every service day without any financial involvement of the church has sown seed.

In their prayers, the members would always remember the person. A person can establish a school and enrol the children of the poor on scholarship from primary to university level. A person can sow seed by establishing a trade or business for a widow for her to take care of her children. It is preferable, to give to the needy what will sustain them for life than prepare food for people to eat. This is because their prayer for the provider of the food ends after they finish eating the food. But their prayers for you continue when livelihood is provided for them.

Therefore, let your seed sowing be continual without stopping as long as you live. Some rich men establish factories, businesses for people to earn a living not necessarily for their own benefit.

Another seed sowing is to your family. This is very important. What were you created to do for your family? Some people are running away from their family. They refuse to travel home to see their family for fear of witchcraft. These people need to put in place something that will be beneficial to their family but they refuse to visit the family. When they do sow seed by touching lives of family members, they will be praying for you and will not want anything to hurt you because you are touching their lives.

Brethren, it is not advisable to believe that your family will bewitch you. Try to do your best for them by touching their lives within your available resources. So if you are requesting for blessing, ensure you sow seed into your family and do what is right to your family, (father, mother, siblings, uncles, aunties, nieces and nephew etc.). Do not run away from your family, it is very dangerous. Know that the witches and wizards can get to their victim anywhere in the world.

Imagine Jesus Christ mentioned that He did not come into this world because of the people but for the lost sheep of the Israelite (Mathew 15:24). It was Apostle Paul that changed it that Jesus came for the whole world. Ensure that your responsibility towards your family is carried out.

Sowing seed into the house of God is the ultimate. Some people believe that because they do not have they cannot sow seed into the house of God. In as much as you eat, try to sow seed in the house of God. Some people have abundantly but sow little, such person will reap little and if you have little and sow seed you will reap bountifully.

Imagine a widow who had little (two shekel) among the rich people she gave the only two shekel she had and Jesus recognized her more than the rich people (Luke 21:1-4). I implore people to imbibe the spirit of sowing seed in the house of God, family and other people so that the blessing of God would come upon them.

Finally, II Corinthians 9:6-9 says: “Remember this, whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sow generously will also reap generously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion for God loves a cheer giver…”
