ECCLESIASTES 11:4 “He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap” (Eccl. 11:4). Excuses. It’s often said that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. But good intentions never paid a bill, and they certainly never blessed anyone. No farmer has ever reaped a harvest on seed that he intended to sow, Can you imagine a farmer saying, “Nope, I don’t believe I’ll go out and plant this corn today. It looks like it might rain a bit and I sure don’t want to sow”? So he tosses the seed in a barn someplace. Come harvest time, what do you think that farmer will find in his fields? Nothing. If you don’t plant the seed, you can’t expect a harvest. “In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good” (Eccl. 11:6). It’s our job to sow seed. Whenever you have the opportunity, whenever you can, put some seed in good ground. If you want to prosper, don’t just scatter your seed to the wind, and don’t hoard it. Sow it in faith, believing. If you sit on your sack of seed, the only thing you’ll get is a seed-sack sofa!
