One day, I heard a Nigerian businessman explain how he became one of the most important rice producers in his country. After purchasing a hundred hectares of arable land in his village, he decided to sow rice on about ten hectares. When he went to the field with rice cultivation experts, he happened to ask them about the yield per hectare.

The experts’ answer made him realize that rice cultivation was an extremely profitable business. At that moment, he decided not to limit himself to just ten hectares. He chose to sow rice on the entire hundred hectares he owned. Thus, he decided to sow abundantly to harvest abundantly. In his letter to the Corinthians, the apostle Paul reminds us of the principle that the quantity of our harvest is proportional to the quantity of our seed.

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.” 2 Corinthians 9:6

People who achieve great feats do not settle for having good seeds. They also ensure to plant them in large quantities. This is how most top athletes testify that they usually train much longer than their peers. Some even declare that they train during holidays.

Exceptional students spend more time studying than their classmates. Pastors who stand out spend more time in God’s presence than many others. Let us decide, from today, to follow the example of all achievers by having very large quantities of good seeds.

Prayer for the Seed and the Harvest:

Father of Glory, I thank You for giving me the ability to choose my future by choosing my thoughts and actions.

Forgive me for all the times I have chosen the wrong seeds.

I also ask for forgiveness for the times I chose to sow little instead of sowing abundantly.

Grant me the grace to adjust and follow the example of all those who have achieved great feats. I want to be an excellent sower who has good quality seeds in large quantities.

In the name of Jesus,
