“Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up, grew and produced a crop, some multiplying thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times.”
The parable of the sower demonstrates the amazing multiplying power of God’s Word. The person who takes responsibility for doing the work receives an abundant harvest from the seed he or she has sown on good ground. This principle works whether you’re sharing your faith or just practicing God’s Word in your daily life as a blessing to others.
Understanding the multiplying power of one simple seed will help you to appreciate the amazing potential of faith in God. Jesus told his disciples that possessing faith as small as a mustard seed had astounding growth potential.
Notice in the parable of the sower Jesus did not say thirty, sixty, a hundred percent, he said thirty, sixty, a hundred fold. The growth Jesus was talking about is three thousand, six thousand, and ten thousand percent, that is astonishing growth potential!
The apostle Paul said “If you sow generously, you will reap generously,” and that is the secret of God’s Kingdom growth potential. According to the law of Genesis all seeds reproduce after their own kind. Intentionally putting this simple law of the seed to work brings incredible demonstrations of God’s fruitfulness into your life.
Keep in mind that in life your thoughts words and deeds are the seeds you sow, all reproducing after their kind all of the time. So, if you’re sowing words and deeds of love, kindness, encouragement, or help of any kind; you’re going to eventually receive three thousand, six thousand, or ten thousand percent return of the same over time. This is why Paul reminded the Corinthian Church that it is better to give than to receive.
You can change your life by intentionally practicing God’s Word according to the Golden rule “treat others as you would like to be treated yourself.” Think of the good you will be doing within your family, Church, and society through the Kingdom lifestyle of sowing good seeds of thoughts words and deeds in the lives of others.
So begin today seeing people as fertile fields for you to sow good seed into, make this your lifestyle, see God transforming others through you, see them blessed by the seeds you sow, see the return blessings God pours into your own life as well, and Be Encouraged. -JSP
