Key Verse

“But other fell into good ground and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.” Matthew 13:8

TEXT — Matthew 13:3-9


Kelly grew up believing that it is only the children from very rich families who would become great and successful in life. What an error and a wrong belief! God has planted the seed of greatness in every child, and His plan is that those seeds would grow and produce greatness, righteousness and success in every life. Inside the seed is the power to become a plant or tree, if it is planted and has access to water, air and the right temperature. From the parable in our text, we learnt that each seed has in it the power to grow and produce fruits, but that it will only grow and bring fruit if it is planted in the right soil.

The growth of the seed of greatness in you begins when you become a child of God through repentance. Then believe that God created you to be great. More importantly be hardworking, disciplined and have a desire to be all that God created you to be. Through obedience, righteousness and faith, the seed of greatness in Abraham grew and he became a great man and a blessing to the whole world. Get ready, it is your time to grow and be all that God wants you to be.
