“For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.” Genesis 26:14

Ghana is one of the world’s largest producer of cocoa. The seeds were brought into the country from Fernando Po by a man called Tetteh Quarshie. Those days, no one was allowed to take cocoa beans out of that country. Despite this, Tetteh Quarshie hid some seeds in his pocket and run to Ghana. When he came, he could have made a hot chocolate drink, put in some sugar, milk, stirred it and drunk it. After which he would have belched, “Ehhhhhh!” and enjoyed a good sleep.

Sometimes, when we have money, we see it as something to be consumed. And many times, we think it is so small. We always want to wait for the ‘big one’ to come before we do something meaningful. Imagine if Tetteh Quarshie had waited for a container of cocoa beans; Ghana would not be the leading producer. He only had a few. That is the power of a seed.

Church of God, if you have only $5 to your name, you are a rich man. You do not need anymore. Tetteh Quarshie just needed a few beans; that was it. Now, it has built schools, clinics, roads, hospitals; it has done so many things.

That is why you should not be worried that you do not have enough because it can multiply itself.

Spend your little money in productive areas not in consumer foods. It will release the power of multiplication.
