CAN YOU LOVE BEING A WATER BOY?

WHO WILL WATER THE WATERER?

WHAT ARE YOU PLANTING?

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

This is a two part series!

Many times I have asked God, WHO WILL WATER THE WATERER?

We need planters, and we need water boys in the church!

1.CAN WE FIND LOVE IN BEING A WATER BOY?

Proverbs 11:25 The liberal soul shall be made fat:

AND HE THAT WATERETH SHALL BE WATERED ALSO HIMSELF.

I was at a football game. I saw this young boy jumping and yelling for his team.

He was handicapped and could not play in the game, but he was the best water boy I had ever seen.

There was a time out called, and in an instant the water boy had the water bottles out on the field.

Not only was the water boy carrying water to his team, he was patting them on the back, telling

them how good they were doing. He cheered for the band when they marched out on the field.

He carried water and towels when the basketball team was playing. He mopped up the sweat

of the players from the basket ball court. But he never made a basket?

I was at the graduation ceremony in June, I saw golden honor cords around some.

Some had scholarships to fine schools. But when the handicapped, excited water boy

walked across the stage --- his class mates stood to their feet and cheered, he was the best

water boy the school had ever known.

2. TEXT:

Proverbs 11:25 The liberal soul shall be made fat:

AND HE THAT WATERETH SHALL BE WATERED ALSO HIMSELF.

1 Corinthians 3: 6 I have PLANTED, Apollos WATERED; BUT GOD GAVE THE INCREASE.

7. So then neither is he that PLANTED any thing, neither is he that WATERETH,

BUT THE GOD THAT GIVETH THE INCREASE.

8. Now he that PLANTED and he that WATERETH ARE ONE: and every man SHALL RECEIVE

HIS OWN REWARD ACCORDING TO HIS OWN LABOR

9. For we are laborers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.

Mark 4: 3 Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow.

4. And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the wayside, ---

5. And some fell on stony ground, ----

7. And some fell among the thorns,

8. And some fell on good ground, ---

The call of God today goes forth, God is recruiting planters, waterers, and reapers.

Will you hear the call?

3. BUT THIS SEED IS SO SMALL, WHAT CAN IT MATTER? WHY WASTE MY EFFORT SOWING

THIS LITTLE THING?

Mark 4:30 And He said, Wherefore shall we liken the Kingdom of God? Or with what comparison

shall we compare it?

31. It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds,

that be in the earth:

32. But when it is sown, it growth up, and becometh greater than all the herbs, and shooteth out great

branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.

A. Well, any one that is going to be a faithful planter, must not look on the outside and judge the inside.

In every seed God has a blueprint for growth, the seed may be small, but God will help it to grow and

develop.

The smallest seed in the world is an orchid seed, thousands fit on the point of a pen.

The largest seed in the world is cocodemer, it can weigh 60 pounds.
