Identify Your Seeds
‘For the black cummin is not threshed with a threshing sledge, nor is a cartwheel rolled over the cummin; but the black cummin is beaten out with a stick, and the cumin with a rod.’Isaiah 28:27
Notice here that the scripture mentions two different types of seeds; black cummin and cummin. Ordinarily you’d think they were one and the same but they’re not. Though the seeds look alike or are similar in some way –they can’t be reaped the same way; one with a stick, the other with a rod.
You’ve got to begin to identify the type of seed you’re sowing. Let me give you an example. Say for instance there’s a family in your church that needs their car repaired and you give them $200. The following month there’s a single mother who doesn’t have money to buy her kids school clothes so you give her $200. That’s two different types of seed. One is black cummin and the other is cummin; they look alike but they’re not.
The seed you have in the ground for that family is ‘car repair’ seed. If ever your vehicle needs to be repaired and you don’t have the money; you already have seed in the ground and can expect a ‘car repair’ harvest. The money you sowed into that single mother is ‘clothes’ seed. Now if you need an outfit, you have ‘clothes’ seed in the ground and can expect a ‘clothes’ harvest.
What you can’t expect on both seeds is a hundredfold return of $20,000 because you gave $200. Yeah you sowed money but it was for ‘car repairs’ and for ‘clothes’. You can’t go to the feed store, give them $1.02 for turnip seeds and expect that because you gave the store clerk $1.02; that the money you gave is going to grow in your backyard. You paid for turnip seeds, so you’ll get turnip greens. It doesn't happen like that with greens, so why do you expect it to happen with your bread(money)?
