Don’t Eat Your Seed 


Dr. Bruce Fletcher 


As you look at the title of this article, you may be thinking, “Who in the world would be crazy enough to actually eat


seeds?” Maybe you have never taken a package of seeds and actually eaten them, but what I am talking about goes


deeper than that. Let me explain. 


The purpose of seed is to provide a future harvest; not food for immediate consumption. 


Paul wrote to the Corinthian’s, “Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply


the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness,” (2 Corinthians 9:10, NKJV). Notice that Paul


said “supply and multiply.” God gives particular provision for the sole purpose of sewing. Furthermore, it cannot


produce bountifully unless it is sown. 


Tom Constable wrote, “The farmer who plants a crop gets back more seed than he sowed. Similarly, Paul argued, 


those who sow spiritually by giving sacrificially to others will receive more spiritual seed, namely divine enablement to


help more people (vv. 8–9). Moreover God will not just supply more spiritual seed, but He will multiply it.”

Ask God for spiritual discernment and wisdom to know what you should be sowing, and remember, “Don’t Eat Your Seed!”
