Take heed …

Posted on Posted in Challenge, Potential

                                               … what you hear!

Jesus, in teaching about the Word,
… and the Word being sown,
also said this …

      Then He said to them,
      ‘Take heed what you hear.
      With the same measure you use,
      it will be measured to you;
      and to you who hear, more will be given.
      For whoever has, to him more will be given;
      but whoever does not have,
      even what he has will be taken away from him.’
      Mark 4 24-25

In other words,
to those who HEAR what the sower says,
attending to, perceiving, considering so as to understand,
to them will be given more,
… they will receive more revelation and understanding,
because God will be able to sow into their lives.

      As also with the mustard seed…
      but when it is sown, it grows up and
      greater than all herbs, and shoots out large branches,
      so that the birds of the air may nest under its shade.
      Mark 4 32

The potential in God’s kingdom is limitless!
But the harvest, our harvest,
… what we benefit from or receive,
is relative to what we are willing to put in.
