Plant In The Spring or Beg In The Fall
Sirach 35:1-12; Psalm 50:5-8, 14, 23; Mark:10:28-31;
We all know that our life here on earth is just a temporary one, and yet most of us gives more importance to our life here. While many business tycoons busy them selves with “planting in the spring” here on so that when they retire they may not encounter any problems, they have not prepared their way into the real life, which is eternal life. “Planting in the spring” involves plating for both lives.
God asks us to be thankful and keep His Word. We have an abundance of blessings from the Lord, but the most material blessing which we receive from Him would be money. The best way to show gratitude to God is to give back some of the blessings which He has bestowed upon you. This would be in the form of 10% tithes, donation for a charity cause, donation to a foundation, etc. When we give, we have to be grateful and at peace with giving that money back to the Lord. Otherwise, your sacrifices and offerings are worth nothing.
While we give back to the Lord, the Lord also blesses us. My mom owns and runs a foundation, Living For Christ Foundation. I’ve seen many, many miracles that happened within her foundation. God truly blesses us even more when we give generously and wholeheartedly. Let’s start planting seeds now for our future life as well!!! 🙂
