The Principle of the Seed

1. God starts with seeds

Then God said, "Let the earth produce plants--some to make grain for seeds and others to make fruits with seeds in them. Every seed will produce more of its own kind of plant." And it happened. The earth produced plants with grain for seeds and trees that made fruits with seeds in them. Each seed grew its own kind of plant. God saw that all this was good. (Gen 1:11-12 NCV)

In the Beginning, God intended the principle of the seed. In our every beginning, it will require a seed.

2. It is a natural law

"As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease." (Gen 8:22 NIV)

God makes sure that the planting and harvesting cycle will always take effect after the seed is planted. The law of seedtime and harvest transcends all realms: physical, emotional, spiritual, etc.

Application: Don't just give an offering, but sow your seed. Never ever mindlessly drop an amount in the offering box or bag - do not be guilty of "tipping" God. The Lord wants you to expect something in return - and that's faith.
