Steward Your Land

Everyone has been given (figuratively speaking) a plot of land. The number of acres is not the issue here, but the truth that you have been given land is important to understand. What you sow on your land is what you will reap from your land. If you sow wickedness on your land or allow others to sow wickedness into your land this is what you will reap. The Bible is clear in its call that we are to sow righteousness on our land and into the lands of others. The sowing of righteousness on your land is of the utmost importance because it yields such a great crop.

Solomon said it this way in Proverbs 11:18 “He who sows righteousness gets a true reward.” Then the prophet Hosea said it this way in 10:12 “Sow with a view to righteousness, Reap in accordance with kindness; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the LORD Until He comes to rain righteousness on you.” Finally, James said, “the seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace” (3:18). From the Old Testament to the New Testament the same theme is spoken, a call to sow righteousness in our fields, on our lands.

I pray that you will be a good gardner of the land the Lord has given you. The size of the land is not as important as the stewardship of it. Sow for yourselves righteousness, for in doing so you will reap the fruit of unfailing love. I pray that you will have eyes to see your land clearly and know what to uproot and what to seed into other peoples lives from the abundance of righteousness God has blessed you with on your land. I bless your land my friend with the rain of God to produce righteousness.
