Your Productivity Matters
What you have to share with others is important. It’s not easy to remember that when our lives are so busy. No matter where you are in your spiritual journey, old or young, your productivity matters to God because you have something to share.
Jesus gave insight to this in his parable about the sower and the seed (Matthew 13:1-23). He compared how seeds grow in different soil types to explain different levels of people’s spiritual productivity.
Jesus mentioned four different soil types: soil along the path, shallow soil on rocky places, soil surrounded by thorns, and good soil. He then explained to the disciples that people are the different types of soil, and the seed that was scattered was God’s message of love (God’s Kingdom is one of love). The point of the parable is to help us see how productive God’s message of love can be in the different types of ‘soil’ we tend to be.
So ask yourself these questions:
Which type of soil are you today?
Which type of soil could you be tomorrow?
The difference between the productivity of the people in Jesus’ story was that the fourth person was able to understand God’s message of love for himself or herself. And because of that understanding, they were able to be very productive about that message with the people in their lives.
Do you understand God’s message of love for you? Do you understand how to share that love with others? Have you thought about how to do that in your life? You can become that good soil.
What you have to share with others is important. You may be the only person God wants to use in order to share His message of love with someone in your life. Your productivity matters to God because you have His love to share.
