Go ahead..Sow a seed!!

Posted: January 29, 2014 in Uncategorized

Why don’t you, right now where you sit, sow a seed of 1000 dollars, and God will bless you. You will be driving new BMW’s, buying new clothes, buying a nice, new big house and have a lot of money, just by sowing your seed of 1000 dollars ore more.

How many times have we heard a “preacher” say something similar to this? Turn on almost any tv preacher and you will hear that sentence almost exactly like I have written it. I’ve heard and seen it so much I can now take any scripture in the Bible and twist it to make you want to give me money. Let’s practice. This is a random verse: And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. That is Philippians 4:7. Ok, here goes.

Brother you just don’t know what God has in store for you. We have little understanding here on earth, God wants you to have great things, to be healthy, have money and not be poor anymore. He cares about you, He is peace, He will guard your heart. You have found favor with the King. All you have to do is be faithful in a little and He will give you much! The God that created you, wants more for you – Sow a seed in faith of 1000 dollars right now and your act of faith will lead you to a life without worry, without debt. Freedom is knocking at your door. A Faithful seed of 1000 dollars right now is all it takes. You can pay by check or credit card right now… Our phone lines are open….Go ahead step out on faith and let God catch you!!!

See, I told you. Maybe you don’t want to give me money right now, but can’t you see the lies in this? Anyone who is broken and beaten by life that doesn’t know Jesus could sink all they have into this so called “ministry.” Even people that do know Jesus can easily fall into this trap. The only person getting rich in this situation is the puffy haired preacher that is wearing the Gucci suit (The real Gucci, not the knock off kind you find at the flea market.) He or she is the one driving the BMW and parking it in his or her 4,000 square foot garage. Don’t sow this seed. It leads to destruction and being more broke than before. If you want to sow a seed, I’ll show you a seed to sow

Galatians 6:7–9

7 Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. 8 For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. 9 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, f we do not give up.

At first glance this could seem like sowing a thousand bucks wouldn’t be a bad idea. Verse seven clearly says you reap what you sow. Keep reading, if you sow to your own flesh, you reap corruption. Think about it, why would we sow 1000 dollars? Obviously for selfish gain. I want the BMW, the new house and the Gucci suit. I want it, I, I, I. See, it’s the flesh. From that attitude , we reap corruption. Corruption is a bad thing, Judas Iscariot was corrupt. He sold Jesus out for a few pieces of silver. I don’t think you want to sell Jesus out for anything right? I hope not.

I realize that most people reading this are probably not going to give your hard earned money to a puffy hair preacher, but, how often are we sowing seeds in other areas of our lives for our own satisfaction or our own pleasure. We buy houses we can’t afford, cars we can’t afford, clothes we can’t afford, vacations we can’t afford, etc… The end of all of this is debt, we aren’t satisfied, we are restless, etc…

So here is the seed that you should sow. Good. Do good. That’s it. Give money to someone who needs it instead of spending it on another vacation, help someone out, do nice things, do good things. Again this is not for our self glorification, this isn’t a “Look at me,” type thing. It is a humbling attitude from our hearts, what is inside, that can be seen by no other than our Father Himself. We may not reap the benefits as soon as we would like, but one thing I know, when we humble ourselves and do good out of love for God, we won’t care about the reaping part. It becomes and added bonus. Sow your seed today; just sow it in the right things. Do good, love on someone, care about someone. Reach out in love and be the hands and feet of Jesus. And you don’t even have to give 1000 dollars to a puffy hair pastor.
