Here is an Opportunity of how one can bring a smile on a hungry child's face through the Power of Sowing a Seed. Isaiah 58:7 (KJV) "Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?
2 corinthians. But this [I say], He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.
What kind of seeds have you been sowing lately? Even though not many of us are farmers or gardeners, all of us are sowers and reapers. If you will sow good seeds, you will find that God’s blessings are showered on you: peace, joy, contentment, fulfilment. And those seeds you sow for others come back in a harvest of good things others will do for you.
when we face difficulties, it’s easy to become ingrown, to where all we think about is my problem, illness, hurt, bills, loneliness; as long as we’re only focused on ourselves, we’ll get stuck where we are; in our time of need, we have to learn to sow a seed; the way to get what you want is by giving away what you need; if you need happiness, don’t sit around in self-pity, go out and make somebody else happy; God will use that seed to bring you happiness. this goes against human nature, but when God sees you getting outside of yourself, when He sees you being good to somebody even though you’re struggling, that’s the seed God will use to bring a harvest back into your own life.
it’s not enough to just trust God, let’s move on to step 2 and be good to somebody; if you’ll learn to sow a seed in your time of need, God promises your light will break forth like the dawn; your healing will come, your problem will turn around, your relationship will be restored, and your dreams will come to pass.
James 1:27 (KJV) '‘Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.’"
