Lessons (2) To Learn From The Parable Of The Sower

"A house is built with wisdom, and it is established with understanding" Proverbs 24:3.

The Parable of the Sower taught us a valuable lesson about the futility of indiscriminate sowing. The Holy Spirit showed us that if we do not sow wisely, we will waste seed, time, and energy. Today, we'll consider the advantages of sowing with knowledge. “And other fell on good land, and did give fruit that sprung up and multiplied; and brought out, some thirty, and some sixty, and some a hundred,” the Lord remarked in Mark 4:8 to end His parable on the sower.

The first takeaway is that not all seeds produce the same amount of fruit. This insight is necessary for every child of God to avoid being disappointed by unmet expectations. The Owner of the Church, in His wisdom, did not endow every member of His Church equally Romans 12:6-8.

What matters is that we all sow seeds, using the gifts God has bestowed on us, and we must do everything in our power to maximize the potential of our seed in order for it to bear the desired fruit John 15:16. As members of the Body of Christ, we must not begin to compare ourselves to one another in a competitive manner. This attitude is discouraged by the Holy Spirit among the brethren 2 Corinthians 10:12.

We are guaranteed to prosper if we chose the suitable soil to sow our seeds into. It's aggravating to put in long hours and have nothing to show for it. In Luke 5:3-8, Peter experienced this, and by the time he met the Owner of Heaven and Earth, he had a tremendous catch. You will be wise to learn from Peter's experience that experiencing breakthroughs in life without difficulty requires Jesus Christ, who is Himself the Wisdom of God (1 Corinthians 1:24-29).

Furthermore, if you pay tithes and give gifts as God commands, you must choose the proper soil in which to sow these seeds of faith. To sow your seeds of giving in, you must find a commission that has God's blessing. Because God's promise in Malachi 3:10 about tithes, sacrifices, and first fruits has not been fulfilled in their lives, many people have been deterred from paying them.

They have become resentful of donating, not only to God but also to the poor, due to a lack of understanding of sowing principles. Many individuals unwittingly sow among thorns and thistles, by the roadside, or even on the rock. We know what happens to such seeds because of the Sower's Parable. In the name of Jesus, this will not be your experience.

Some ministries that aren't established on God's call are like the roadside and rocky land Jesus mentioned; it's best not to invest your time and resources in them. Overall, sowing the seed of your life into Christ is the best investment you can make. If you do, you will undoubtedly receive several benefits (Mark 10:30, John 10:10).

What God hasn't mandated, He isn't committed to. Are you investing in a cause that He supports?
