My beloved children in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Today’s word of God is taken from Psalm 126:6 , “He who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, Bringing his sheaves with him.”
We find that the Sower is sowing with tears. Why should the Sower sow with tears? The Sower has great responsibility. He has to carry the heavy load taking everything he has to sow; his investment is the seed grain. He sows the seeds with expectation of harvesting a profit. But the field may require more of his attention. He has to water it. He has to protect it from birds and animals. He will be worried about the climate. He has to have the strength to maintain his cultivation. Like this he will be having many reasons to be worried. But when the harvest is ready, the Sower will return with songs of joy as they bring back an abundant harvest. He sowed in tears, but when it yields a harvest of thirty, sixty, hundred, lakhs, crores, he will joyfully carry the sheaves home.
When something leaves our hand or when we face a loss there will be tears, but when it yields a good harvest there are shouts of joy. Today you have invested heavily, and some dead investments are not giving you any returns. Do not be worried. God will help you to reap blessings. Sometimes coveting a high interest , if you have invested in a finance company declaring God will grant you a good harvest; there is no guarantee from the Lord because you were avaricious for high interest. The Lord said to do business with the talents you have. Don’t have unrealistic expectations after investing without hard work. Many are greedy for earning the easy way. Taking a loan on a small interest to invest and get high-interest returns. They will be caught in it with no escape. All this comes out of greed. We should not unnecessarily get caught in this. The next piece of advice that the Lord gives is – Do not sign a guarantee for anyone unnecessarily. If someone asks for monetary help, give it to them as a gift, not as a loan. Many are caught as they took loans for others, even contemplating suicide. So, don’t get stuck. Be vigilant. According to this verse, the Lord will grant a harvest on whatever you have invested. Invest fairly and properly. Don’t get caught in the wrong deeds. To earn by fair means, invest fairly. God will grant a good harvest.
Dear Lord, we thank You. In the name of Jesus I bless my children. Lord my children have sowed bountifully let them harvest with shouts of joy. Parents have sown lavishly for their children’s education but have not reaped the harvest yet; the children have not yet got a job. Today obliterate every obstacle and open ways for their income and earnings so that they may bloom and blossom. I bless them. Meet the children who are shackled, break every chain, and protect them from problems. In Jesus name. Amen.
