“While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease.” Genesis 8:22 (NKJV)
Nothing in life has been designed to plateau. God created things to multiply and increase. He calls this principal the law of seedtime and harvest, which will always be in effect.
Take an apple, for example. One apple can have about five to ten seeds in it. Each seed has the potential to grow a tree, and each tree has the potential to produce thousands of apples in its lifetime. If you were to count the number of seeds produced by each tree, they would number into the tens of thousands. And each seed is capable of producing another tree, which produces thousands of apples, and so on. The potential for increase within one tiny apple is exponential.
Some people suggest that you are being greedy if you keep going after increase, but remaining stagnant simply isn’t Biblical. If God placed a gift within you, He has given you the responsibility to increase it, making it produce more.
If God gave you the gift of making money, then go produce it. He doesn’t frown on growth—He created it! In fact, when you put your gift to work for the Kingdom, He can use that increase to reach the world. If you’re succeeding at what you’re doing, don’t stop. Keep going until the whole world is in awe of our Jesus who made it all possible!
Think about this—if God placed great potential for increase within a measly apple, imagine what He has placed in you!
