Jesus spoke about multiplication often.
Addition is good and is needed before multiplication takes place.
For example 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 = 12; (see blog my post here on www.nickklinkenberg.com April 2018 Addition to multiplication). BUT multiplication is about 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 = 81! Often we think bigger is better. Growth is great but let’s not mistake that for multiplication.
The DNA of Abraham, Jesus, His disciples and US, is one of Multiplication!
Look at the time frame of Elephants reproducing themselves:
They are only fertile 4 times a year.
One baby per pregnancy. A 22-month gestation period.
Sexual maturity at 18 years.
Maximum growth potential in 3 years...from 2 elephants to 3!
Now let’s look at Rabbits:
Almost continuously fertile.
Average of 7 babies per pregnancy. 1 month gestation period.
Sexual maturity at 4 months.
Maximum growth potential in 3 years...from 2 rabbits to 476 million!!
Often I see leaders wanting to build larger churches. After all, healthy things grow! But an apple tree will always be an apple tree, it will never be an oak tree. I can pray and fast 40 days, but it will never grow bigger and be an oak tree!! But it can multiply! In fact, if the seeds of one apple tree would all be planted, we would have an orchard, and in time orchards! That’s multiplication. Even nature declares multiplication. So, if you’re an apple tree, be the best apple tree you can be and do what you are meant to do: multiply!
So, with the resources you have, how can you multiply?
