It’s always good for every Celestial Church member to reap in the harvest of action what they have planted in the soil of contemplation but quite a large number of our members that plant plentifully never reaped bountifully during this special season.
Sometimes, we wonder why we put in all into the church harvest and yet nothing, in terms of blessing or divine reward, coming to us after the celebration. The reason is not far-fetched, according to research; those special days of receiving are always left for strangers (Guests) while the members, who are supposed to be direct beneficiaries of the blessings of harvest, are busy attending to some unnecessary and unprofitable things outside.
Some people will go as far as arranging their own chairs and tables filled with exotic cognacs within or outside the church premises where the needs of their guests are paramount. Some are positioned to monitor the pieces of meats and rice with Semo and vegetable soup kept in the warmers at the store house or Shepherd’s office.
It’s so important to note that those who have sown a good deed should harvest it first but the reverse is the case as many have missed the purpose of harvesting while trying to please people or attending to bread and wine.
Let’s all know today that the best way to find ourselves is to lose ourselves in the service of others.
I hope this will make us have a change of attitude towards our harvests!
