Sowing or Pounding

Life has been mundane, with the usual stuff but it really has been a very exciting week. The Holy Spirit has revolutionize my thinking and the word of God bringing new understanding to my life. Its really exciting to see the Word been so alive! So beautiful and powerful.

We are have seen words in the bible regarding sowing.
Ps 107:37
And sow fields and plant vineyards, And gather a fruitful harvest.
Ps 126:5
Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting.
My favorite Matthew 13:4

God created an image of sowing to represent new beginning, new life, new hope. Jesus used sowing to speak parables that sowing is part of our Christian walk. bad sowing is sowing discord, jealously,gossip. Good sowing is truth, love, encouragement. But how often do we be good farmers and sow good seeds into people lives?

Sometimes, we tend to think we are sowing good seeds into people lives by telling them the word of God. But theres a difference between POUNDING the Seeds into the soil(which is a life) and SOWINg the seeds.

Pounding will sound like this: With a stern, dominating, firm tone
To Non Christians: Other religions are wrong, Christ the only way.
If you do not study hard you have no future.
When reality sets in

Sowing will sounds like this: With a compassionate, humble YET firm tone
To Non Christians: We all have our beliefs, but I believe Christ is salvation
Studying enables you to have be a stable platform and more opportunities in life.
Dream, envision and hope

I do not have much analogies or examples but I hope u all get the picture. And I'm certain this is what I have to blog for today :D. Theres always a difference of sowing seeds and pounding them in one's life. The seed destroyed before the roots are grown. But sowing, you will see God real in the soil and the seed.
1 Cor 2:16 I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow.
