TOOL OR MEDAL 5

Anchor scripture : So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. [Psalms 90:12]

Time is a gift, a precious one. Bil Keane reminds us that “yesterday is the past; tomorrow is the future but today is a gift; that is why it is called present”. Gifts are meant to be appreciated and put into good use. Therefore, “We must use time as a tool” admonished John F. Kennedy.

Time is one of the greatest tools/resources in your possession right now. We all have the same 24 hours each day; what makes the difference is primarily hinged on your ability to properly understand the value of time and manage it appropriately.
Time is meant to be invested, not spent or wasted. Understanding time is awakening to the reality that you are created for God’s pleasure, so you live every day with the drive to please God. Many people existed without necessarily living. They existed and died but didn’t live. Living is by revelation. It is doing exactly what God wants you to do daily. How is it possible to know what He wants you to do daily? Simple! By keeping a consistent fellowship with Him through prayers.

Has anyone ever left this earth with his/her possessions or titles? Is what you are born to do, not better than what you are trained to do? Is your gift not better than your skill? Is your God given assignment not better than your job? Are we not all going to give account of how we spent our time here on earth? Every moment is an opportunity to do God’s will.

Better is the end of a thing than the beginning [Ecclesiastes 7:8b].

Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. [Ecclesiastes 12:13&14].

How would you rather invest your time?

Decision: I choose to use my time to understand my purpose and fulfill it.

Discovery: The first most precise timekeeping devices (pendulum clock and spiral-hairspring watch) were invented in 1656 by Christiaan Huygens a Dutch polymath and horologist.

*Seeds or Harvest? 5*

Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus’ feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.
But one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, who was later to betray him, objected,
“Why wasn’t this perfume sold and the money given to the poor? It was worth a year’s wages.”
“Leave her alone,” Jesus replied. “It was intended that she should save this perfume for the day of my burial.
John 13:3-5 & 7

Purpose is key to planting, a good farmer knows what to plant, where to plant, when to plant and how to plant in other to get a good yield, Judas Iscariot suggested (though with an impure motive) she planted in the lives of the poor instead of on Jesus feet, it didn’t look like a bad idea at all, but Jesus response shows that she understood purpose and acted accordingly, and her harvest was bountiful.

Therefore it is not enough for you to identify a good seed, but the right place and at the right time, some people today use their tithes to help the poor, that is an example of bad planting, the bible says, “bring your tithe to my house(your local church in this case) so that there will be food.
Before you plant seek purpose

*Seeds or Harvests 3*

 

Mark 12:41-44

“As Jesus sat near the Temple treasury, he watched the people as they dropped in their money. Many rich men dropped in a lot of money; then a poor widow came along and dropped in two little copper coins, worth about a penny. He called his disciples together and said to them, “I tell you that this poor widow put more in the offering box than all the others. For the others put in what they had to spare of their riches; but she, poor as she is, put in all she had—she gave all she had to live on.””

 

The quality of seeds does not lie in the quantity, when you sow the right seeds you will get the right Harvests.

 

Jesus was in no way saying we should sow everything we have, but He was referring to the heart of the giver, we often think people that give more are better givers than people that give less, the magnitude of seeds lies in the heart.

 

If God’s opens your eyes to where some givers take from, you will learn to appreciate every little gift that comes your way.

 

A good farmers sows the best for a great harvest, always sow your best.

God Loves a cheerful giver.
