The Fullest Life Ever Imaginable

“But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.”

– Matthew 13:23

What would you say is a good return on investment when investing money? Since the 2008 housing crisis, banks have offered nearly zero percent interest rates on savings accounts. So for the past 15 years, the return on investment has been very low if you’ve had cash to invest. Now that interest rates are creeping up, some people are opening savings accounts. Right now, there are savings accounts that offer 4 percent these days. It doesn’t sound like much, but it’s a lot more than zero percent!

Again I ask, what is a good return on investment? There are many who would say 20, 30, or 40 percent. What if I told you it could be 10,000 percent? Jesus teaches us an interesting principle on investing: In good soil “Whatever you sow, you will receive 3,000 percent, 6,000 percent, and 10,000 percent.” That’s an incredibly high return. The life investments we make include not only money but also friendship and joy in life, and it’s about living the fullest life ever imaginable! In Galatians 6:7-8 it states: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.”

Friend, last week I said words are powerful. In Matthew 13:23 what we are sowing are words. Let’s plant the words of God when we speak and encourage others. It will be a tremendous harvest for you as you plant these kinds of words in your life and land them on good soil.


Father, help me to plant good words into other people’s lives and invest in friendships.


Do you know that you can receive a high return on your investments in the Kingdom of God?
