Jesus compares the workings of the kingdom of God to planting seeds in the earth: “When the seed is sown,” He said, “it grows up….” Notice He didn’t say that it would occasionally grow up. Or it grows up if it’s God’s will. He said , “It grows up and becomes greater,” period.
God’s economy isn’t like our economy — up one day and down the other. It’s always the same and always works perfectly. If the requirements of good earth, good seed, and good water are met, there will always be growth. It’s inevitable.
So if you are facing a need, don’t panic. Plant a seed! The seed may take the form of money, time, or some other resource you have to give. But no matter what form it takes, make sure you put life in it by giving it in faith and surrounding it with praise and worship. Say, “Lord, as I bring you my goods, I bring myself. I give myself to You — spirit, soul, and body.”
