YOUR DIVINE INVESTMENT
INVESTMENT INTO THE LIVES OF
FELLOW BELIVERS (THIRTY FOLD RETURNS)
WHEN YOU SEE BELIEVERS IN NEED AND YOU FAIL TO HELP OUT WHEN YOU CAN, IT BECOMES A SIN TO YOU,
Memorize: "As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith" (Gal 6:10)
Read: Galatians 6:9-10
9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do well unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
"And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred" (Mark 4:8).
When you sow on good soil, you will definitely receive your harvest. The harvest may be in thirtyfold, sixtyfold or a hundredfold. You can determine the kind of harvest you want by the ground you sow on. "As we have therefore opportunity, let us do well unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith" (Gal 6:10). When you give to fellow believers, your seed will attract a thirty fold return on your investment. Some believers think they lose by meeting the needs of fellow believers. Or that they are favouring that needy one by their assistance or sacrifice. Oh, how wrong they are! When you invest in shares of publicly quoted companies of your choice, do you feel you are doing them a favour or you consider yourself favoured by the opportunity to multiply your money? If you keep the money to yourself, it will depreciate in value or at best maintain status quo.
It is the same with sowing in the Kingdom. If you fail to sow what you have, there is no way it can increase. This was why the Master was angry with the servant who wrapped his pound in a napkin instead of putting it in the bank where it could attract a little interest (Luke 19:12-27). Yes, you could do well to all men including unbelievers. The harvest you can get from sowing into unbelievers is less than the thirtyfold return except when you lead that individual to Christ. That guarantees Heaven's greatest yield. The greatest seed you can give to an unbeliever is not money or any other valuable but Salvation. But for fellow believers, Paul says you should be the one looking out for needy brethren so as to sow into their lives. You have your thirtyfold return on that investment. On the other hand, when you see believers in need and you fail to help out, it becomes a sin to you. In this regard, instead of an opportunity to get thirtyfold returns, you get a minus (James 4:17). Be a wise spiritual investor today!
