“You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.” ~Matthew 17:20.
A mustard seed is pretty tiny.
It isn’t the smallest seed, because carrot seeds are definitely smaller, but from that tiny seed comes a big plant. I have seen mustard fields–they are beautiful. Out from a tiny yellow seed, a large yellow plant grows. It is symbolic that out of what you plant, you will get a return of something greater. One kernel of corn produces a stalk with 3-4 ears of corn and each ear of corn produces approximately 800 kernels of corn. The return for the planting is amazing.
God returns what is planted for His Kingdom, the same way.
Since He created the corn or mustard seed, He knew how its plant cycle would illustrate His provision for Him. God wants to be able to grow something in each of us that produces a massive harvest. We only need to be willing to plant a seed.
What is your seed?
When loneliness begins to creep in and it feels as though you are aching for someone to reach out to you, reach out to them. Plant a seed of friendship by sending a sweet text or calling just to ask how they are doing. “You catch more bees with honey then with vinegar”, so be sweet and not bitter. People have no desire to be around anyone who is bitter–in fact they avoid communicating with that type of person.
The Bible talks a lot about seed time and harvest.
There is only one challenge with it and that is the verse in Malachi where God says to test Him with your tithe. Sow into the kingdom and see how God can multiple that. One one of my earlier blog posts I spoke about how I used to be someone that only tithed when I had the finances to do it. That never worked. It wasn’t until I began tithing before looking at any other bill that I became financially free. I sow my seed into His kingdom for tithing to our church and reap the benefits of having more then enough, even to the extent of being able to give love offerings to several other ministries.
You can’t get a pineapple from a grapefruit seed.
So, what is your need?
For the past few months, I have been ministering to villages in Pakistan. I was asked by a couple, who had been following me on social media for awhile, if I would pastor a church. It multiplied into something greater than I had thought it would because of the seed I sowed.
Below is the result of the seed that was sown.
