The law is simple and the law is sure. You not only reap what you sow, but if you sow you are guaranteed to reap.
Can you remember a parent or grandparent warning you about your choices in life? They would say; don’t forget, you always reap what you sow, and of course, they were right.
This principle of sowing and reaping applies to every area of life, not just your finances. Whatever you sow in life, you’re going to reap. Whatever you deposit is going to be returned to you. If you sow criticism in life, you are going to reap criticism from other people. If you sow kindness, you’re going to reap kindness. It’s the law of the harvest. If you plant apple seeds, you don’t get pears; you get apples. If you sow with generosity, you will reap generosity. This is the principle of the harvest: Whenever you have a need, plant a seed. When a farmer looks at his barren fields, he doesn’t gripe about it. He just goes out and starts planting some seed. If he does so look what happens, the little seeds turn into a harvest. If he only has a little bit of seed, he has a choice. He can either hoard it, or he can plant it away. If he holds onto it, that’s all he’s got. If he gives it away to the ground, God will multiply it.
Farmers who don’t sow any seed don’t get any crop! And much like the farmer we won’t get a crop of souls without sowing some gospel seed! But we must do it, the Bible says; “Go into all the world and tell the good news…” Mark 16:15.
The “going” is the starting place for the work of sharing the Good news with others.
We are to go – whether it is next door or to another country – and share the seeds from the gospel to help make disciples. We all have gifts that we can use to help bring others to know Jesus. Christians today in all parts of the world are telling this Good News to people who haven’t heard about Christ.
If we have gone with compassionate hearts, and if we have sown the gospel seeds, there will be a great harvest of souls!
Jesus came to seek and to save the lost. He didn’t waste time and neither should we. Reach out to lost people and He will provide the harvest. If you sow the seed of the gospel of Jesus Christ, you are guaranteed to reap souls for, that is the law of the harvest!
What kind of seeds are you planting? Keep on doing good and trust God for the results. In due time, we will reap a harvest of blessings.
Galatians 6:7 -8 “You will always harvest what you plant. So let us not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.”
