Excellence, it’s all in what we sow

We have arrived. We have reached the last weekend in the year 2018.

Several of us have thought about and began to make preparations for the incoming year.

If I may, allow me to slip this thought into your brain cavities. 2019 is your year to starting living the best years of your life.

Do you believe you can live a life of abundance? Reap an excellent harvest?

Jesus said, “I come that you might have life and life more abundantly.”

To live a life of abundance, to reap an excellent harvest all starts with what we sow, invest or plant.

The Word said we can have it.

Beginning today let’s begin to intentionally sow the seed of the Word of God in our lives. Sow the principles, policies, procedures, practices, and processes of the excellent Word of God.

Galatians 6:7 (NKJV) “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.”

What “that” are we reaping is based on the “that” that we sow.

No New Year’s resolution will be accomplished without sowing. However, in order to have lived a life of abundance, to begin reaping an excellent harvest we must sow, plant, invest, instill, deposit or the like excellent seeds into our everyday lives.

This sowing must become a part of our daily routine and lifestyle.

Understand, we are not on the hook to make the harvest manifest. God has already declared that the Harvest is on standby to be delivered to the address of the sower.

What’s delivered all depends on the order (sow) that has been placed.

Let me appeal to you this way. A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children. Our legacy left to our loved ones will tell the complete truth about what we have been sowing over the course of our lives. If you don’t sow the seeds to an excellent harvest for yourself, will you do it for them?

Christ did it for you.

2019 the year of living an excellent harvest. Excellence, it’s all in what we sow.
