"Our Seeds" - 03/18/16 - Deuteronomy 21-23

03/18/16 - Deuteronomy 21-23

"Our Seeds"

"Don't plant two kinds of seed in your vineyard. If you do, you will forfeit what you've sown, the total production of the vineyard."(22:9)

Harvest time always will come.
Eventually the truth will come out.

We will be known by our fruits in all things, in all ways.

I used to notice around age 40, a person's face began to reveal what is in their heart. Over the past few years though, as the world falls further from God, some you can begin to see when in their early 30's.  Think about persons who are beautiful on the inside and how their face radiates His beauty from within. And those whose heart is of the world, has a face that becomes hard and bitter.

You can not hide what seeds you have sown, for there is always a ripple effect from our choices - always.

There isn't any walking the fence with God.
You are either with Him or against Him.
No gray areas.

So often He amazes me in showing how far we, as such a self-centered people, actually touch lives beyond our wildest imagination. How small this world really is.

And I will wonder -  what this life would be if we were God-centered.

I see how quickly the seeds of the world can choke out the seeds sown for Him, if they haven't taken proper root. The key to a healthy lawn is a healthy root system. This crowds the weeds out, stands strong against the elements and disease. But - it must be properly maintained to flourish.

As we too, must maintain our seeds in Him, with His Word, a church family, fellowship with believers, serving Him. Focusing on Him and being in an intimate relationship with Him.

Only then can we enjoy The Fruits of The Spirit.

"But The Fruit of The Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law."
(Galatians 5:22,23)
