Sow What? The Principle of Sowing and Reaping
No one plants an apple seed and expects to get an avocado. In this message, lead pastor Tyler Padgitt explore the profound impact of generosity on our life and how it aligns with God's divine plan for the believer.
It's time to adopt a mind/shift for regarding sowing and reaping:
- It Stretches Your Faith: Generous giving is letting the heart lead over the mind's doubts. As you give, you may feel like you're taking a leap of faith, but remember that no one has ever become poor by giving.
- Become More Like Jesus: Generosity has the incredible power to transform our hearts and make us more like Jesus. As we give and forgive, we embody the very essence of Christ's teachings. It's time to let go of greed and bitterness and embrace the liberating act of giving.
- It Shapes Our Future: Like a farmer sows seeds with an expectation of a harvest, giving is done with a clear goal in mind. The law of the harvest, as described in Galatians 6:7, reminds us that we reap what we sow.
A generous harvest is always preceded by faith filled sowing.
