THAT SEED OF YOURS WILL BECOME A FOREST SOME DAY (Part 2)
The first text of today’s edition of The Message now in Galatians chapter 6 verses 7-8 reads as follows:
‘7 Be not deceived brethren, God is not mocked, whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8 For he who soweth to his flesh will of his flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life’.
Less ultra sensory intuition will inform any man that the subject of sowing follows a two-paradigm dimension. Whilst the first paradigm points in the direction of encouragement to give as a mark of service of goodwill to humanity and to God, the other paradigm is of a completely bipolar tangent.
Having examined this first arm last week, it is onto this bipolar paradigmatic angle that today’s edition will now turn. One common maxim in this part of the world’s enclave opines: ‘the evil that men do lives on after them’.
Over the years, this maxim has been modified to now read that ‘the evil that men do lives on with them’. And, I must add, ‘after them too’. Kindly permit my harsh diction in this edition. The very factual truth is incontestable that the problem about evil men is in their thoughtlessness. How?
Whoever is a deep thinker will avoid sowing evil seeds. For it is common knowledge that any evil seed sown today without genuine repentance, apology and with restitution where necessary will attract severe consequences. The problem about the severe consequences is that the outcome of any evil seed is a forest of evil in return and not just the same evil seed sown.
The point is an obvious one: a grain of evil will attract an avalanche of troubles for the evil sower in the end. If this is the spiritual mathematical calculus, is sowing evil seeds a good business? It only begs common sense to align with the reality that sowing an evil seed to reap a forest of evil in return is an exceptionally bad business bargain.
What sort of seed(s) are you sowing? Do you sow hatred against other people and you expect to be loved? NO!!! Such a thought is at best hallucination. Please, return to the land of reality. I tell you a true account—the experience of a Man of God.

(Gal.6:7-8, Luke 6:38)
THAT SEED OF YOURS WILL BECOME A FOREST SOME DAY
The thesis statement of Matshona Dhliwayo unarguably aptly captures the notion and eventual outcome behind any fulfilled desire to Sow. But caution must immediately be called upon here. This is because the sort of sowing under reference is that in the affirmative sense.
Matshona Dhliwayo wrote: ‘a seed today is a forest tomorrow’. How so true! God’s bountiful return always far outweighs man’s prior offering. Indeed, internationally renowned accounting technocrats and investment experts like Warren Buffet and the likes will agree with me that with proper caution spearheading budgeting and investment, turnover is expected not to run short of, but exceed initial investment by at least some margin. Why?
Every seed sown especially to God is a contribution being made to the bank of heaven. As a deposit for investment, it immediately yields maximum prosperity. So, at cash-point (in the light of Deut.1:11), $10 emerges in the worth and value of $10,000 in diverse ways extending beyond financial prosperity.
This is exactly the divine notion of Luke chapter 6 verse 38. It states: ‘give, and it shall be given unto you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over shall men give unto your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal, it shall be measured unto you again’.
If this is the Spiritual, material and, at least the financial turnover for sowing, why does the question about not reaping so prevalent?
