Hello friends this is responsibility campaign and I am D. J. Goodman your responsibility coach. I want to help you build better responses to situations of life and that is what I am doing on this broadcast.
Now we have been talking about the power of opportunity the last time we defined opportunity as being in the right place at the right time, we read Ecclesiastes chapter 9 verses 11 from the New Living Translation, and today, I want to show you something about opportunity; how to recognize opportunities that God is sending your way.
And one way you can recognize opportunity is by knowing the difference between Seed and Bread, the moment you recognize something as seed then the thing becomes an opportunity to you.
What is a seed? A seed is something that has a future value, it has the ability to reproduce, a seed is something that when you invest it, when you plant it , it can give you back a thousand times more of its kind. So a seed is something that reproduces after its kind.
The moment you recognize something as a seed; something that can give you a multiplication effect, something that can multiply itself back to you in value, then it has become an OPPORTUNITY.
Let me read to you a very interesting scripture, and that is 2 Corinthians 9:10
Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness (2 Corinthians 9:10)
“Seed to the sower!”
It’s only the SOWER that recognizes a SEED. Now I can give you many examples on that of what a seed is all about for you to understand what I am talking about.
For instance, until you have recognized money as seed , money is not yet an opportunity to you. The money that someone wastes is the money that other people use to achieve something great!
By the same token if TIME is not a seed to you; if you’ve not seen time as a seed, you will never see time as an opportunity.Whatever is not a seed is always wasted. Why? Because we don’t see it as an opportunity.
What of friendship? You have a friend around you, that friend is good in a particular thing; he’s good in helping you to achieve things, but you’ve never seen that friend as a seed, you’ve never seen that friend as having impact on your future; you will waste that friendship.
Whatever you’ve not seen as a seed is not an opportunity!
I always give the instance of mobile devices. A lot of people invest so much money to buy phones; to buy ipads; to buy tablets, and I always wonder what they use these tablet for. A young lady went to buy a tablet one particular time, and I asked her, “What do you want to use this tablet for? Why did you buy it?
Funny enough, she said, “Well, I want to store up music there so that I can be listening to music.” That was the reason why she went to buy that gadget. She didn’t need that gadget for anything tangible; she didn’t see it as a seed.
Whatever you’ve recognized as a seed becomes an opportunity. That thing can’t be wasted.; and until you become a sower, until you become someone that invests to get a harvest, then you will be a waster of opportunity.
But my prayer is that you will recognize the opportunities that God is sending your way; you will recognize the seeds that God is giving you that can generate a future harvest, so that you will not be wasting the opportunities coming your way.
My responsibility challenge to you today is to ask: How many things have you recognized as seeds in your life? What are the seeds that God has given you: something you can sow to generate a future harvest?
If you can’t recognize any seed around you, then you need to watch Responsibility Campaign because I want to coach you to recognize seeds; recognize opportunities; so that you can become great in life.
Till I come your way next time on another episode of Responsibility Campaign, I challenge you be responsible. Bye for now.
