Well, there are people who think they’re not receiving
Anything from God at all
Oh, they are shaken from their believin'
When they don’t see results they quickly fall

But don’t you waiver, keep on living
In the way God wants you to
Don’t get discouraged keep on giving
Soon it will come back to you

Keep on casting your bread upon the water
Soon it's going to come back home on every wave
Keep on casting your bread upon the water
Soon it's going to come back home on every wave

Good measure pressed down, shaking together, running over
Soon it's going to come back home on every wave

Oh, keep on working, seeking the kingdom
Instead of working for your needs
Just keep on sharing the love of Jesus
You know growing comes from planting seeds

Keep on casting your bread upon the water
Soon it's going to come back home on every wave
Keep on casting your bread upon the water
Soon it's going to come back home on every wave

Good measure pressed down, shaking together, running over
Soon it's going to come back home on every wave

Every wave

Keep on casting your bread upon the water
Soon it's going to come back home on every wave
Keep on casting your bread upon the water
Soon it's going to come back home on every wave

Good measure pressed down, shaking together, running over
Soon it's going to come back home

Keep on casting your bread upon the water
Soon it's going to come back home on
Keep on casting your bread upon the water
Soon it's going to come back home

Keep on casting your bread upon the water
Soon it's going to come back home
Keep on casting, keep on casting
Soon it's going to come back home

Keep on casting your bread upon the water
Soon it's going to come back home on every wave
Keep on casting your bread upon the water

    When we decide to "do the right things" we expect to see good results and perhaps even to be rewarded for doing the right thing. When this doesn't happen and happen fairly quickly, we begin to feel discouraged - failing to realize that god's timing is not our timing. We will reap what we sow - god's word says so - it just won't always be as quickly as we want it to be. But god is faithful and he will reward the right behavior of his children - in his time and out of his abundance and love for us. For those who may be weary and discouraged, turn your focus away from what you are seeing/not seeing and toward him. Your father is faithful and he loves you! He will reward you for your faithfulness.
