Ring-fence your Seed

Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. -2 Corinthians 9:10&11

If you have been in the church even for a very short time, you must be familiar with the above scripture along with others quite similar that are used at offering time.

For some people, all is well until it’s offering time; it’s downhill from then on. My senior pastor, Wale Olulana did a pack of teaching a couple of years ago which I recommend to all, it’s called ‘offering is warfare’; he couldn’t have put it any better.

You can count on one hand things that impact our lives more than money. You’re probably familiar with Zig Ziglar’s take on the matter, “money is not everything”, Zig says, “but it ranks right up there with oxygen” Money is not an issue only in church; of course some do take it to the limit. However you should see me a while back when I’m paying some bills; money issues are real.

I did some of my growing up in a predominantly farming community in Africa. Growing up in such a place teaches you one thing among many others; there is a difference between seed for sowing and bread for eating. The farmer knows there’ll be no harvest next season without seed to sow. He saves some of the best seeds of his harvest for the next planting season.

Every financial freedom book worth reading advocates having a saving first, no matter how small.  I guess it’s not in the amount but the habit. W. Clement Stone puts it more bluntly, “if you cannot save money, then the seeds of greatness are not in you.” Perhaps that is a bit hash, but it sounds logical to me. In addition to meeting your needs, you need the savings for your charitable giving and seed to invest for your future harvest.

Don’t mistake your seed for bread and don’t give all your seed to charity. Think investment, think multiplication. God is able and willing to inspire you for a bigger harvest. Your prosperity and generosity bring God praise and thanksgiving; it is in the interest of God that you prosper.

You can prosper; you shall prosper in Jesus’ name.

Being generous is an act of kindness that helps the people involved. Though it is important to know our limitations and save also for ourselves. Saving for our future will help us in the long-term because there are circumstances wherein we need it the most. We should learn which one to spend, to give to charity, and to invest, because in the end, we would not be having a difficult time in certain matters. Wisely spending our money is a good way to use our harvests.

Functions of the society are regulated for the citizens. The color is flared for the movement of the goals. The fairness of the mode is instilled for the parents of the field.
