Remain Focused

Each day we trek through life.  Some have a desire to do great things and start a journey to that goal.  However, in some cases, perhaps many, we find that we are not progressing to our goal at the rate that we thought we would. Something is holding us back.  It is easy to go on a "witch hunt" so to speak, and try to find everything we have been doing wrong.  However, sometimes we may find that it is not we who are the culprit.  We may find that we have been pulled by puppet strings by those around us and thus hindering progress to reaching our goals and micro goals. This article is to make you aware of this affect so that you can remain focused in accomplishing your goals.

Reaping Where You Have Not Sown

I have noticed something very significant over the last eight years or so at the time of this writing. Simply put, people expect to reap where they have not sown.  That’s like going to the bank trying to make a withdrawal when you have not made any deposits. We would say that is silly, but Christians do it all the time.  They expect God to swoop down and rescue them from their dilemma when they have never taken the time to invest in their own spiritual wellbeing and to learn what God has already made available to them for that situation.

In this lesson, I am going to present to you the importance of sowing the word of God into your own heart so that when situations arise, good or bad, you will be able to act according to the word of God and with wisdom.  We are going to use the parable of the sower and the seed as a launching point for this topic as well as other parables that highlight the importance of the word of God from Matthew Chapter 13.
