A poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which amount to a cent. 

Calling His disciples to Him, He said to them, “Truly I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the contributors to the treasury; 

for they all put in out of their surplus, but she, out of her poverty, put in all she owned, all she had to live on.”

Sowing seed for the harvest

The Bible makes it clear that we will reap what we sow. Once you start thinking of that like a farmer it makes it a lot easier…

I am getting ready to plant some tomato, lettuce, herbs, and a bunch of other seeds. I know that if I don’t drop any seed in the ground, I will not get any of the harvest in a few months. But if I do plant those seeds, I can count on receiving a bunch of tomatoes, peppers, lettuce and everything else that I sow.

We need to look at every dollar we have as seed. We can either spend it on ourselves or we can sow it into the Kingdom of God (our local church) or sow it into someone else’s life.

Galatians 6:7Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.

It is okay to expect a harvest for what you sow. God said it. We can trust Him. Let’s make it a point this week to sow a little bit more seed, and just see what God does.
