    Deuteronomy 11:26-28

    God has made it abundantly clear that we can choose blessing or cursing. Jesus understood this. He said that he didn't go anywhere or say anything unless His Father told Him to do so (see John 5:19, 30; 8:28). He lived a life of constant, full submission to the Father.

    “While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. ” Gen. 8:22

    The law of seedtime and harvest was set in motion at the beginning of time, and will remain in motion while the earth remains. This is a natural and spiritual law. Whether a seed is planted in the natural or in the spirit, the seed must be given time to grow and develop before a harvest can be seen.

We have deadlines, budgets, staffing, financial pressures, attendance, audits, reports (you fill in the blanks) that could make our blood pressure rise and account for many sleepless nights. But Jesus cautions us against worrying about anything, even the food we eat or the clothes we wear. In this passage, Jesus gives his disciples (and us) six reasons for trusting in God rather than worrying.

    Some believe a simple hand shake between the church and the vendor is all that is needed to form a perfectly construed, binding contract. They believe that as long as you have a good relationship with the vendor or because the vendor is a member of the church that you don't have to enter into a written contract. Litigation is born out of the failure to have a fully, executed written contract with insurance requirements attached to it.

    God sowed three great seed-bearing seeds" into this planet. The first seed was the seed of His own breath invested in a mound of dirt He had carefully formed with His own hands. The result was the creation of an eternal creature named Adam, made in God's own image and after His likeness. You are directly descended from that first man and father.
