So the writer says what we have heard and what we have listened to. There’s a difference between hearing and listening. I heard the voice that said, “Ed, give Joseph the pen.” I didn’t do anything. I was passive. I heard it, though. I listened when I said, “You know what, I resolve in my heart to bless Joseph with the pen. I’m going to walk across the room. I’m going to walk across the arena floor and give him the pen.”
God began to unlock, once again, his understanding of his economy. Because when I say, “God, unlock my understanding of your economy,” guess what happens? The geological plates of your life and mine shift, and I move from greed to seed.
Because in the natural I think my stuff is my stuff. I have this greed thing going on, and don’t act like you don’t. Everybody hearing my voice right now at all of our campuses, you understand greed. We need and we greed. We greed and we need.
Yeah, I want to get it; it’s mine. Yet, in God’s economy, as he unlocks his understanding, what happens? I discover I’m not an owner. I’m simply a steward. I’m a manager. I don’t own jack. It’s all God’s. It’s seed.
So everything I do I’m sowing seed. I’m a farmer, and you’re a farmer. We’re sowing seed with the words that come out of our mouths. We sow seed in relationships. We sow seed in our marriage. We sow seed in a dating relationship. We sow seed with our kids. We sow seed in your career. We sow seed if we’re playing some sport.
We’re always sowing seed, sowing seed, and sowing seed. And Jesus talked about, in Matthew 13, the different soils where we sow the seed. Jesus said, “You better sow seed in the most fertile soil possible.” God, though, wants to move all our understanding. He wants to unlock it from greed to seed.© Copyright admin, All rights Reserved.
