My neighbors’ farming is my farming.

fruits

There was a farmer who always won the first prize whenever an agriculture exposition was held. He always handed out his best seeds to his neighboring farmers. When people asked him for the reason, he said with a smile,

“When wind blows, seeds and pollen are dispersed all over by the wind. If my neighboring farmers grow crops of poor quality, the pollen from the crops will be blown onto my fields and it will lower the quality of my crops.

So, my neighbors’ farming is my farming.

How many times did I give my best things to my brothers and sisters according to the teachings of Mother? When I look back on my previous life, I felt ashamed of myself. But from now on, I will try my best to give the better to my loving brothers and sisters as Mother said.

“As Abraham was blessed with the better when he gave in for his nephew Lot, so we are blessed more greatly when we give in for our brothers and sisters.”

    Well, I’m quite sure that the one who reads this article would have thought of what they have done in the past.
    As a child of God, I should obey the teachings of Mother, however, when I looked back on myself who do not put it into practice, I come to realize that I am just a sinner.
    As God said “If you love me, keep my commandments.” From now on I’ll also try my best to obey the Teachings of Mother. J

    I heard this story before.
    At that time I got many realization from this story, but I have forgotten till now.
    By reading it again, I could examine myself.
    And I give thanks to God the Father Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother for leading me to the righteous path with good teachings.
    I will keep Mother’s teachings in my mind and put it into practice!

    Actually, it’s not easy to give a good things to the others even though I’m disposed to try it.
    Because I’ve grown up in a society that competed with the others to take a better things.
    But the kingdom of Heaven where God promised us allows people to enter who can give and share the good things like Abraham or such a farmer. So from now on, I’ll try to put it into practice all the teachings of God the Mother!!

    When I look back on my previous life, I too felt ashamed of myself.
    In my mind, I think ‘I will give’,but in reality I do ‘I will have a better thing’ with greed.
    From now on, I will give better thing to my brothers and sisters from the little thing according to Mother’s teaching, believing that God will give me much better blessings latter~ :->

    As children of God, we have become farmers to do farming of Gospel by following Heavenly Mother’s will. And we have same purpose and vision that we want to fulfill the completion of Gospel. That’s why we can work together in one accord by aiming to fulfill same purpose. If we just have selfish mind like caring about my job and sort of mine, we cannot be united and follow heaven’s will. Therefore, by following and practicing the example of God’s love, we have to bear abundant fruits in farming of Gospel to please our Heavenly Father and Mother and eventually we will get salvation.

    Nowadays, People only want to receive something but forget the way to give love.
    They desperately strive to get more nice thing than other people and even steal others easily.
    To care for others can be regarded as loss at that time.
    However according to the teachings of God the Mother, ‘Giving love is more blessed than receiving love.’
    Because God the Mother is pleased with the mind of giving, consideration and love for our brothers and sisters.

    As pollen of a farmer who had bad crops affected neighbor’s crops in a bad way, I realized that the selfish behaviors and thoughts that I have are enough to affect to my brothers and sisters around me and helping brothers and sisters in Zion is the thing that makes my life goes well. Because Father Ahnsahnghong and New Jerusalem Mother will worry about sisters and brothers who are suffering from many difficulties. Brothers and sisters are parts of the body of them. While God concerning about brothers and sisters, if I ignore of their difficulties, how can I say that I’m accompanied with God? Although I’m so happy from the salvation of God, Father Ahnsahnghong and New Jerusalem Mother never feel happy for them. So, I determine that I will be more devoted for my sisters and brothers not only lip but also behavior! Because I received the genuine love of God from Father Ahnsahnghong and Mother in Zion!

    I feel the same way about what you said. When I look back on myself, I have to repent that I didn’t have good mind like the farmer in the story.
    From now on, I’ll try to give the better to my brothers, sisters and neighbors in accordance with the Mother’s teachings.

    I realize how much Heavenly Mother loves us.
    I’ve thought it was an obligation such as ‘Do it so that you can enter the Kingdom of Heaven’,
    without realizing all teachings of Heavenly Mother are for us to give us blessings in the end.
    I will be a faithful son who obeys Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother, believing that everything is for us.

    [How many times did I give my best things to my brothers and sisters according to the teachings of Mother?]

    I am ashamed of myself before this question.
    I used to love myself more than brothers and sisters in many things.
    I hope to resemble Elohim God to love brothers and sisters with all my heart!

    Though I also knew this fact that we are blessed more greatly when we give in for our brothers and sisters, but, I feel ashamed of myself that I did not put it into practice fully. If we practice the teachings of God the Mother, we can be changed to a true child of God and enjoy true happiness and pleasure in the love of God. I want to become a child who pleases God together with brothers and sisters by practicing the teachings of God with a firm faith.

  13. “As Abraham was blessed with the better when he gave in for his nephew Lot, so we are blessed more greatly when we give in for our brothers and sisters.”

    Now I can clearly understand this teaching of Mother!! The example is so clear!! As a Child of God, I will keep in mind, “My neighbors’ farming is my farming.”
