Every Dream Begins with a Seed

Genesis 47:20–27 NLT
So Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh. All the Egyptians sold him their fields because the famine was so severe, and soon all the land belonged to Pharaoh. As for the people, he made them all slaves, from one end of Egypt to the other. The only land he did not buy was the land belonging to the priests. They received an allotment of food directly from Pharaoh, so they didn’t need to sell their land. Then Joseph said to the people, “Look, today I have bought you and your land for Pharaoh. I will provide you with seed so you can plant the fields. Then when you harvest it, one-fifth of your crop will belong to Pharaoh. You may keep the remaining four-fifths as seed for your fields and as food for you, your households, and your little ones.” “You have saved our lives!” they exclaimed. “May it please you, my lord, to let us be Pharaoh’s servants.” Joseph then issued a decree still in effect in the land of Egypt, that Pharaoh should receive one-fifth of all the crops grown on his land. Only the land belonging to the priests was not given to Pharaoh. Meanwhile, the people of Israel settled in the region of Goshen in Egypt. There they acquired property, and they were fruitful, and their population grew rapidly.
Genesis 47:20
Joseph was essentially second in command in Egypt. He was in a place to take care of the God’s children.
Joseph did not just give the people of Israel land and food, he gave them so much more. Joseph gave them seed!
When they planted the seed, and worked the land they “acquired new land and were fruitful.”
“The first Gift God gave to man was a seed.” Neil Kennedy

Seeds?

Seeds are a tangible action we take.
Seeds are meant to be planted into ground that can cause the seeds to grow into the dream.
Where are you planting your seeds that God has given you?
2 Corinthians 9:10 NLT
For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you.
God has given you seed.
