A well-known maxim teaches us that ‘it takes money to make money’. We need to have some measure of finance available before we can start investing and look forward to a reasonable return. God, who has much at s disposal, also has done some investing. Now He’s looking for a return. Did you know that He’s invested in us? There are quite a number of pictures in the Bible where God compares us to a garden, a tree, or a vine, and He goes to great lengths to look after what He’s planted. He does everything He can to care for it. He`s taken time and effort with a view to cultivating us, hoping to see fruit in our lives that will glorify m. He doesn’t just expect us to ‘produce works’ without first pouring something into us, as that would be rather unfair. No, He carefully looks after us, tends us, nourishes us, waters us, prunes us, and protects us. He wants to set us up as well as He can so we can bear the fruit He’s looking for. As the Lord has invested in us, He desires that we, too, should invest in others. Now there’s a thought! Who or what are you investing in? Are you investing in others? Are you sowing into s kingdom, using whatever He’s placed at your disposal? If you do, you`ll have a certain and eternal reward waiting for you – a precious reward which no one can ever take away from you. This reward will be given to you by God – to keep forever! If, however, it turns out we’re only investing in ourselves, we’re not being very good stewards. The return for this investment will be nothing to be excited about. Such an investment would be unwise. We’re blessed so we can be a blessing. There’s no better, safer investment than into the kingdom of God. When everything’s said and done, and we’re in eternity, I think the Lord will show that there’s no one who pays better returns than He does. But will we have made the right investments? One caveat must be mentioned here: He does want us to take care of ourselves! It`s true that we can`t give unless we first receive it. But are we receiving only because we want more for ourselves, or are we hoping to sow into the lives of others? https://seedsofthekingdom.org/devotionals
