Then came she and worshiped him, saying, Lord, help me. But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs. Matthew 15:25-26

The world we live in today, is one that is guided by principles. These principles are what would determine the results one gets. Little wonder Scriptures refer to Jesus as the head of all principality and powers.

Colossians 2:10 says,

And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

You see, God is a master communicator. His Words cut across through eternity.

When He speaks, He does so in order of relative importance. The above verse shows that to God, principles precede power. So many Christians seek to exert power, but they fail to abide by principles.

Take for example, a Christian who has refused to get a job or work for himself. This Christian spends hours every day instead praying for success. God would never grant that man the success he’s always praying for. The hours he spent trying to enforce power would have been so fruitful if only he chose to abide by the principles of financial prosperity.

There is a seed principle that God is really particular about. God is more concerned about what you do with the seed.

So, a farmer can give one of his student 5 grains of maize, and another, the same number or maybe, lesser. This doesn’t mean that both would have the same level of harvest. Sometimes, the one with the lesser seed, even produces more than the one with the more seeds.

The variations in productivity is dependent on the conditions by which both farmers put their seeds through.

This brings to mind the parable of the talent. Matthew 25:15-17 says,

And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.
Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same and made them other five talents. And likewise, he that had received two, he also gained other two.

Just like the Master, God expects that with every Word we receive from the pulpit, we produce with it. He wants you to plant it; give it the necessary conditions needed to foster its growth and reap a bountiful harvest.

There is a seed principle that you must start applying.

I observe the principle of seeding and harvest. I trade with the Word, and I bear tremendous results. I am not a foolish servant.
