The Power of Bountiful Sowing (Noon)
2 Corinthians 9:6 But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
Mr. Andre is a farmer who owns vast farming land. His crops haven’t been profitable lately. Half of his crops suffer from pests and rats, while the rest has low quality due to water shortages caused by the long drought. It can be said that Mr. Andre has been facing crop failure for the last 6 months in a row. His financials has been affected, therefore, it’s more difficult to buy seeds. However, Mr. Andre collects all of his savings and buys the best seeds he can find.
After preparing his farm, Mr. Andre starts to sow his seeds. This time, he has a strategy to maintain his farm. Cooperating with other farmers, Mr. Andre rents a water pump. He irrigates his farm with water, 60 cm in height above the ground, and puts several fish in it. Therefore, Mr. Andre’s farm is safe from rats and other pests, and he also a fishery. Mr. Andre has 2 sources of profit from his farm. He earns profits from his farming and fishery.
Today, God reminds us to stay faithful in sowing. Although these days are tough and full of uncertainty, God wants us to stay faithful in applying His Words. Do not be dismayed and weak, because we have a powerful God. He will surely give us strength as long as we believe in and stay faithful to Him. One way we can do it is to sow bountifully because bountiful sowing has the power to earn bountiful reaping. When we sow, the sowing must be the one that moves God’s heart. This is the right time for us to sow the best seeds we have so that we won’t pass this crisis in vain, but it will bring us great blessings from God instead. By His grace, through this crisis, we will be made stronger than ever before.
A BOUNTIFUL SOWING has the POWER to bring A BOUNTIFUL HARVEST.
