“Bringing in the Sheaves”! “Bringing in the Sheaves”! That was the Topic for the previous Sunday at All Saints’ Cathedral Nakasero which marked Harvest Sunday. The Preacher Mr. Sam Ewou extracted the Sermon from Leviticus 2:11-16 & Matthew 6:1-4 respectively and focused on being intentional at harvesting which practice gains it’s roots from intentional giving/ planting.
Mr. Ewou pointed out that harvest excites us as Mankind and it is a natural and a God given principle that comes year after year, season after season. The above notwithstanding, harvest ought to be done intentionally – which yields in great harvest and great faith with intentionally working on it and subsequent implementation; which is clearly exemplified in Genesis 8:22: “As long as the earth endures seed time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.” In the same vein, Isaiah 37:30 rightly emphasizes that “There is a year when you will eat what grows by its self, and the second year what springs from that, but in the third year sow and reap, plant vineyards and eat their fruit.”
Christians therefore are called and are duty-bound to intentional giving which targets an Intentional Harvest. Whenever a Christian(s) give for a godly cause, it is never in vain: it always comes back to you. Parishioners must always have a purpose, with the right attitude before
the Lord and to always be thankful to what God has gifted them [1Thessalonians 5:18].
