I was walking in town yesterday and I saw a lady who was pregnant and she was walking towards me, some guy who was walking aimlessly was about to hit her and I noticed that she stopped and she put her hand over her tummy, turned to the side and she let the guy pass, so that he wouldn’t hit her. As I saw this I smiled because I saw the love that she had for her unborn baby, she’s not yet seen him/her but still she was ready to protect them, thats what you call motherly instincts. She is carrying a seed and she wants to give birth to the seed and watch it grow, she will do everything in her power to protect her seed. She will provide, nurture, love & take care of this seed all the days of her life. As parents, the one thing that we will be accountable for is our children, how we raised them, the morals that we taught them. God has given us the seed of children, what did we do with it? Did we molest them? did we torture them? did we fail to provide when we could have?
Some of us think that since you don’t have a gift that everyone sees, then your gift is less important, no it isn’t. Paul says in 1Corinthians 12:4-6 There are different kind of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men. Be it Spiritual gifts, a special talent that some people have, all have being given by the same God, because we are all His children. How we use the gifts that He gives us, is what becomes the game changer. We are all pregnant with a child, and the child is the gift within us, we need to nurture, take care of what God has given us, water the seed so that it can grow. If you can serve, then by all means serve and don’t look down upon yourself that all you do is serve others! no, serve as if you were serving God and not man, because God is the one who rewards us, He is the one who will place the crown of life onto your head, not man. If you can sing, sing unto the Lord, let that be your ministry and serve God with it. Whatever God has put into your heart, use it.
What seed are you carrying? Do you know it? Let your seed spring forth, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in Heaven Matthew 5:16. Don’t let fear consume you, don’t be afraid of making mistakes while nurturing the seed that God has given you, but rather be confident of this, that He who began a good work in you, will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus Philippians 1:6
