An ATM (automatic teller machine) gives you what you have in the bank. No deposit, no withdrawal. Sometimes, it won’t give you what you have deposited because either you have exceeded your daily withdrawal limit, the check has not cleared or you don’t have enough to withdraw due to a minimum machine withdrawal threshold.
Let’s Talk About Life, Relationships and Destiny
1. No seed, no harvest. You can’t reap where you did not sow. If you want things to change, then sow and very soon, you shall reap a bountiful harvest and your labor shall not be in vain.
2. If you keep taking whatever you have deposited, one day it will finish. In relationships, don’t be the one they call a “leech” – always taking and not making any deposits. This applies to business and ministry relationships too. Haven’t you heard that givers never lack?
3. Don’t expect because you have helped someone in the past, so whenever you say “jump” he or she must always say “how high” regardless of the threat [or even damage] to his or her destiny, reputation or legacy.
4. Sometimes, despite the fact that you sowed, the “check” needs time to clear. In life, even when you sow seeds, don’t expect to reap immediately. It takes time and has to go through its own process.
Look at plants. You sow the seed but the soil needs to receive it. There is an adjustment process and you cannot collect the fruit immediately.
Impatience has made many people miss out on bountiful harvests.
They sow seeds but cannot wait for the fruit to be ready for the harvest. Instead, they try all kinds of manipulative ways to force a harvest. Let this year be different. Let’s strive to sow seeds and patiently wait for the harvest. It will surely come.
