Have you ever feel like youíre spinning your wheels when it comes to trying to get something done for the kingdom of God, regardless ofyour effort? Itís easy to get discouraged when youíve dedicated yourself to something but it doesnít seem to be working out no matter how hard you try. You may not realize it but there are spiritual forces out there trying to desperately destroy your good kingdom work. The literal arrows of warfare spoken of in Eph. 6:16 that try to take you out are also aimed at your good works because itís like a missile defense system for the enemy, trying to intercept the fruit of your labor.

In Luke chapter 8 Jesus speaks of the sower who sows his seed on rocky or thorny ground. Even though this parable is talking about sowing the Word of God into the world for the sake of witnessing, you could also look at it with respect to the good things youíre trying to get done for God. Your labor, however, could be in vein if youíre not paying attention to where your works are sown. You may have very good seed, that is your intentions, but if your seed falls by the wayside without getting to fertile ground it could be trampled down and the birds will devour it and your work would be to no avail. Or if you sow it on rocky ground, representing a lack of long term faith, it might spring up quickly but then wither because it canít hold enough life giving moisture, that is faith, in such a rocky atmosphere, and your work would be to no avail.

Then again your seed might be planted around the thorns among the prickly and immature, chocked out by petty posturing and again your work would be to no avail. Instead, let the limited resources of your kingdom work fall on ground rich in faith and watered with resolve that brings forth a crop of one hundredfold returning your small investment with great wealth stored up for eternal purposes. I encourage you, in the Name of Jesus, to be wise with the work of your heart and hands.
