Do You Plant Good Seeds or Bad Seeds?

Have you ever attended a church service and thought to yourselves, ” I got nothing out of that.”  If so, have you ever taken the time to ask yourself, “Why not?”  Or did you just start complaining?  Recently there was a guest pastor who did a service and I really didn’t like his approach to the message he was giving.  All I could see was a T.V. Preacher….. only live and in person.  I felt as if the two hours at church was such a waste.  I did not feel uplifted, or as if I had anything to chew on (meditate).  Worse of all I blamed the pastor.  All the while, I know that it is my responsibly to get my spirit right with God, not the Pastor’s.  While going home we (as a family) always ask each other if the service was good and if they enjoyed it.  I did not set a good example.  I went spouting off everything that I did not like, even when the rest of my family had said that they did enjoy the service.  I place seeds of doubt, rudeness, being mean into their minds and spirits.

I know that not every service is meant just for me, the way I feel I need to hear it.  I know that every preacher is different in their way of preaching.  I know that with every word of God spoken, there is at least one person who needs to hear it the way it was given.  Preachers are God appointed for God’s will and not mine.  So it has come to my attention (even though the damage has been done) that the service was in fact for me.  Even if only to learn this lesson.  Now giving me the opportunity to apologize to God for all that I wasted and for the evil I did.  For I showed no Love in my words or attitude.

Those of us who attend church generally go because we like the way a church is.  Whether it’s the preaching, the music, the people.  But God always knows when and why to shake things up.  Even if we don’t like it at first.  Although I still don’t like the manner in which the sermon was given, it will not stop me from attending this church when the next a guest Pastor comes.  It does however give me the opportunity to open my heart, mind, and spirit more.  It does give me more opportunity to get closer to God.  To be more grateful for all the people He places in my life.
