Happy Monday! We are going to continue our discussion on The Matters of Money. Today I want to discuss the powers of sowing and reaping. It’s only in the Kingdom that you have to loose to gain.
Let’s hear what Mark has to say about the matter-
29 And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s,
30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
31 But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.
Do you see the paradox? I’m asking God for more and he is saying to me give more? It is the norm to fund all types of savings account, 401k, money market accounts, CDs, and the stock market. Whereas in the Kingdom the only real way to secure our future is “giving”. Jesus says in the above scriptures, that no man will leave his house, family, and land (in other words give up everything) for the sake of the gospel and not receive it back “in this earth” 100 fold. (that means 100 times over). Now there is a little caveat that – with persecutions. **That’s another blog 🙂
I want to leave you with this to think about – are you willing to give up everything now – to gain later.
