The Children’s Mite is considered to be one talent or ability from the Lord (Matthew 25:15). God will not give us more when we’re not thankful and faithful with what He has already given us. He looks deep down in the soil or heart to see if we’ve done everything in our own power to profit the one talent. If so, He will exalt us. He will add more talents. In other words, He will open other doors of success. As the word of God says to him who is abased, God will exalt (Matthew 23:12).
When a seed is first planted in the ground, there is no evidence of growth. But yet, by believing, you’re expecting the seed to produce a harvest. The planted seed will not grow properly unless it is watered and the weeds removed on a daily basis. This procedure enables the seed to take deep root in the ground; therefore, enabling its growth. Likewise, willingness, thankfulness and faithfulness enable the seed of the word of God to take deep root in our heart, which results in humility.
But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lord’s money (Matthew 25:18). Let’s place emphasis on the word “hid” which means to cover, conceal, and keep secret. This unfaithful servant received the word of God in his heart. But he refused to allow the Holy Spirit to help him grow in that which God has given him to do. He chose to hide, keep secret, conceal, and cover up within his heart the word of God. He chose to keep the word of the Lord to himself by not telling anybody. In conclusion, he quenched the Holy Spirit.
We must not be like the unfaithful and unprofitable servant and hide or keep secret the word of God so that others cannot be blessed from the harvest. By choosing to uncover, reveal and expose The Children’s Mite, a measure of seed from the Lord, many people have reaped from its harvest. They have received love, peace, joy and faith in God. One talent or measure of seed from God received with willingness, thankfulness and faithfulness through the Holy Spirit can produce a large harvest for our Lord Christ Jesus.
Amen (So Be It)
