Don’t Eat Your Seed
by Bishop Keith A. Butler
And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how.
If you had a bag of sunflower seeds, you can eat those seeds and it will alleviate your hunger temporarily. But when you’ve eaten your last seed, that’s all you get. If you plant those seeds instead of eating them, however, the outcome will be much different.
Most people freak out between the time they plant and the time they harvest. Satan says, “You have to dig up this seed now. You have to eat.” From the time that you plant to the time of harvest, you have to operate with patience, a word which means cheerful endurance. Your stomach may be growling, but you will have a smile on your face, saying, “Thank you, Lord.”
If you give those seeds enough time and water, you will have a whole field of sunflower seeds. You will be able to live a long time off one bag instead of just satiate your hunger for a moment. Don’t eat your seed! Take a longer view. Know that the Father’s Word will work!
Prayer for Today
Father, I honor you and your Word. I trust you in all things! I praise you for being faithful and true, for helping me live in faith and patience until your harvest. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
