NUGGETS OF FIRE PROOF INVESTMENTS
Gal 6:6-8, “But let the one being taught in the Word, share with the one teaching, in all good things. 7Do not be deceived, Yahweh is not mocked. For whatever a man may sow, that he also will reap. 8For the one sowing to his flesh will reap corruption of the flesh. But the one sowing to the Spirit will reap everlasting life from the Spirit.”
Earlier we touched briefly on transferring our wealth into our spiritual future. How do we do that? Paul shows us here that we do this by sowing to the Spirit. Sowing into good ministries, and by taking care of the poor, homeless, lame, orphan, and widows.
But, we don’t just sow money into our spiritual future, we also sow the Word with the intention that it will bear fruit for eternal life to the hearer and to us. Matthew 13:18-23, “But you hear the parable of the seed, 19 everyone hearing the Word of the kingdom, and not understanding, then the evil one comes and catches away that which was sown in his heart. This is that sown by the roadside. 20 And that sown on the stony places is this, the one hearing the Word, and immediately receiving it with joy, 21 But he has no root in him but is temporal. And when trouble or persecution comes, he is quickly offended because of the word. 22 And that sown into the thorn bushes is this the one hearing the Word, and the cares of this world, and the deceit of riches, choke the Word, and it becomes unfruitful. 23 But that sown on the good ground is this the one hearing the Word, and understanding it, who indeed bears and yields fruit, one truly a hundredfold, and one sixty, and one thirty.
