“Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant.”
Galatians 6:7 (NLT)
The Law of the Harvest
Well it’s that time again. The fall season. Cool temperatures, brisk mornings and cool evenings. For me, that means it’s time to sow grass seed in my front and back yard.
A few weeks ago, my lawn care professional came out to my home, he aerated and planted Kentucky rye grass seed in my front and back yard. He said “water it as much as possible and give it 6-8 weeks. It will grow.”
Needless to say I listened to him and followed his instructions. An amazing transformation began to take place. My yard transformed from dry, brown and barren – to lush, healthy, rich green grass.
It’s called the “Law of the Harvest.” Which simply means, what we sow we will reap…more than we sow and later than we sow. It’s not only true with fruits or vegetables or grass, but in our personal and spiritual life as well.
If we choose to sow bad seed to our fleshly, sinful nature and selfish desires we will reap a lifetime of pain, consequences and regret.
However, if we sow good seed of serving and obedience to God by living out the character and conduct of Jesus Christ, we will reap a great harvest for His Kingdom.
Never forget; You will reap what you sow, more than you sow and later than you sow. It’s called “The law of the harvest.”
Chose wisely and sow good seed!
