We have been taught wrongly for so long, being told that when we give, not to EXPECT anything back.
This is not correct. Because if that was so, then why does GOD give us the principle of SEED-TIME-HARVEST? ""PLEASE SEARCH THESE SCRIPTURES"" (Gen.8:22)..(Eph.3:20)..(2 Cor.9:6-8)..(Mal. 3:10-12)..(Gal.6:7-9)..(Lk.6:38) & So on.
Im guilty of being a giver & not EXPECTING anything back & so i often lack a lot of times! You see Its not that we arent to EXPECT anything back, its about WHOM to EXPECT it back from! And this is what this lesson is about today.
Question? Why would a farmer plant seeds if he were not in EXPECTATION? Why do companys put out commercials & advertise, if they were not in EXPECTATION? ( THE WORLD USES THIS PRINCIPLE, SO WHY DONT WE AS CHRISTIAN USE IT? ) People this is a GOD given principle planted into the earth for us to reap what we sow ,(EXAMPLE) therefore if you spend more time watching the news than reading your Bible, you will reap "fear" rather than "faith".. EXPECTATIONS! God Himself sowed His greatest SEED (JESUS CHRIST), EXPECTING us to return to Him.. Start living in EXPECTATION people, for where there is no EXPECTATIONS, there is no hope and no hope = no life! Be a giver & live!!!!!
CONCLUSION:: IF YOU WANT A GOOD HARVEST THEN PLANT YOUR SEEDS ON GOOD SOIL (SOMETHING POSITIVE), BUT DONT (EXPECT) A GOOD HARVEST WHEN YOUR PLANTING YOUR SEEDS INTO CONCRETE (NOTHING GOOD, NOTHING POSITIVE)?
NOTE:: SEED IS NOT ALWAYS MONEY, BUT IT IS TIME, LOVE & WHATEVER YOU CAN GIVE THAT WILL PRODUCE & REMEMBER THIS IF YOU PLANT BAD SEEDS THEN KNOW YOU WILL RECEIVE A BAD HARVEST, BUT IF YOU PLANT GOOD SEED THEN (EXPECT) THE GOOD HARVEST... YOU KNOW WHAT SEEDS YOUR PLANTING
(BE TRUE TO THINE OWN-SELF AND IF NEED BE MAKE THE PROPER CORRECTIONS)
