Scripture: Romans 12:3
Romans 12:3 says, “For I say, through grace given to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly as God has dealt to each man a measure of faith.” Verse three clearly sets the parameters of humility and declares that we must grow up into God’s Word one day at a time. Our heart is spiritual soil and God’s Word is spiritual seed that when sown and germinated grows the promise. Each Sonship Gift is a seed when sown in our heart can reproduce its own fruit! Blamelessness produces freedom from guilt and shame! No seed produces a harvest within just days of being sown. The growth pattern is first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear. Growth takes weeks and months. We plant it, water it, weed it and give it time to grow. We expose it to plenty of sunshine and eventually it produces a harvest. Seeds take time to produce a harvest and so it is with God’s Word. Let’s be purposeful and diligent and give each Sonship Gift enough time for full fruit to grow to harvest. It takes careful development to produce a God-pleasing harvest. Farming takes patience and nurturance whether growing crops or Christian character and mature confidence. Let’s be committed to give this process all the time it needs. The dividends will be a clear pathway to our destiny.
