SCARING BIRDS OR SOWING SEEDS

DECEMBER 10

At the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9 NIV)

Jesus told the story of a farmer who sowed seed in four different kinds of ground, but only the first could produce anything. What happened to the seed in the other three? Weeds choked the second,

the third was ruined by rocks, and the fourth was devoured by birds.

And that’s still how it works! You either spend your life pulling weeds, removing rocks, scaring birds-or sowing seeds. Make the right choice and you prosper; make the wrong one, and it’ll be a long, hard

winter.

Here are your options today: (1) Quit because of the “weeds” that attempt to choke the life out of your dreams. (2) Get discouraged because of the “rocks” you have to climb over or go around on your way to your goals. (3) Exhaust yourself fighting off “birds” that constantly attack your values and try to rob you of your vision. (4) Go through life sowing “good seeds” and reaping good harvests. It’s up to you!

Negative thinking will always empower your problem and keep you from reaching your destiny! lt’Il ensure that your harvest never makes it to the barn! So focus on the end game. When things go wrong, don’t you go wrong with them! Remember, God has promised that when the time is right-you will reap!

WHEN YOU GET UP EACH DAY. TELL YOURSELF, IT’S TIME TO GO OUT AND DO SOME MORE SOWING.
