just a thought


Rev. Aaron Linford

One of the surest things in nature is the link between “seedtime and Harvest” (Gen 8:22). Given the right conditions, what we sow we shall reap.

And this is true in the spiritual realm. This divine law is operative in grace as well as nature; “for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” (Gal 6:7-9). Three principles are seen in harvest laws.

First, you reap IF you sow. The law of harvest calls for activity. The sluggard who neglects to sow will not gather any grain (Prov 20:4).

Secondly, you reap WHAT you sow. “Sow to the flesh – reap corruption, sow to the spirit – reap life everlasting”. “Well-doing” augurs a harvest of well-being: but evil spawns evil.

Thirdly, you reap MORE than you sow. Scatter wheat on prepared ground and it will reproduce itself up to a hundred-fold. What benefits are heaped on those who benefit others, but what sorrow springs from those who sow hatred. Sow well: reap well.

And so, “Let us not be weary in well doing; for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not”. Harvest-home is blessed when we sow good.
