It’s only fair…

City Bible Church wrote about Faith Harvest in their latest bulletin. So, I feel it's only fair to let them tell you what they think Faith Harvest is all about (it's confusing, I know)…

Today's Thought
The Bible is filled with "seed" language when talking about our lives. The gospel message is likened to a seed planted and our natural lives begin with a seed that led to conception. Seed language helps us understand that our lives tomorrow, will be the fruit of the seed we plant today. It furthermore helps us realize that those "seeds" bathed in prayer and faith are the ones that bear the greatest fruit.

 

Personal finances are also called seed. How we direct our money reflects our dreams and heart-desires. Tithing and giving to missions are obvious examples of sowing our financial seed, so too is investing in our education, a wedding, helping our parents, a home or saving for retirement. Financial seed is planted, good fruit results.

 

At CBC we understand that the principle of sowing and reaping is just as true in the spiritual dimension as it is in a natural. That’s why we’ve established a tradition to help the church family put this seed-planting principle into practice. We call it Faith Harvest Giving. It is the time when we intentionally take the seeds of our dreams, needs and desires and present them to the Lord in a faith-filled environment expecting a great future harvest. Let’s approach this Faith Harvest season with great faith and optimism for own lives and the extension of God’s kingdom

 Sounds like I sumed it up rather well

  1. After reading this I am aware of the agony you must have gone thru listening to the message. Thank you for summarizing. After the first 3 minutes I think I would have left.

    The above statement says a lot about the level of intelligence at City Bible. Not exactly the smartest crowd in the world.

    Yeah, any good financial planner will tell you that getting married is one of the best things you can do to build your portfolio. Am I right?

    It’s just another sign of how much they put marriage on a pedestal. Getting married doesn’t make you richer, smarter, more mature, or “more spiritual”. But they love to imply that it does all these things and more. I don’t have anything against marriage (maybe I’ll get there someday) but I don’t believe it will fix my life either.

    But it DOES mean you are HAVING MORE FUN.
