The Answer? Seed!

The people of Egypt were desperate. Facing famine, they were willing to do just about anything to find food, even selling their possessions to their government. Then, as they approached Joseph with their needs, they didn’t request bread or meat, fruits or vegetables; they simply asked for Seed.

They knew that Seed was the resource they needed for the future. Seed would yield new Seeds that could be planted, and the cycle would continue.

Here we see the principle of Seedtime and Harvest in action. At the beginning of creation, God declared, “Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after their kind with seed in them” (Genesis 1:11). Generations later, God gave Noah a related principle, stating that “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest…shall not cease” (Genesis 8:22).

These principles rule over agriculture, but also over relationships, health, finances, and all areas of life, for we always Reap what we Sow (Galatians 6:7).

How do we solve our problems? We take what Seed we have, then, we Sow these Seeds. These Seeds can be anything—our words and gestures, our actions and time, our money and resources.

Today, ask yourself what seed God has given you. Then look for opportunities to invest in His Kingdom. Bless others with your time, talent, and treasure. Be ready for a Harvest of God’s blessing!
