The Law of the Harvest
Are you familiar with the following terms?
You get out of life what you put in it. You reap what you sow. What goes up, must come down. What goes around, comes around.
Some call it The Boomerang Effect, Hindus calls it Karma, Sir. Isaac Newton called it The Law of Gravity.
Scripture calls it The Law of the Harvest.
When you think of the term law, what comes to mind?
Order. Accountability. Equality. Justice. Balance.
God made this law as a way of making sure there are checks and balances in this world. It is in the nature of man to sin. If we had no rewards, consequences or repercussions for our actions and decisions, then there would be no respect, no discipline, no sense of accomplishment, no hope, no dreams and no desire for a future.
Whatever you do, you are sowing (planting) a seed. There will be a reaping of that harvest when the season has arrived. The question is, will you be reaping a good harvest or a bad one? It's all up to you. If you work hard with good cheer, you reap a great and bountiful harvest. If you are sleeping while others are doing all the work, you will reap poverty. The way you treat others is the way you will be treated. If you take short-cuts, it will be short-lived. If you are deceitful, you will be decieved. What's done in the dark will soon come to light. If you live by the sword, you die by the sword.
Even with our planet, mother earth, our home, the gift that God has given us. All of the recent natural disasters are as a result of us polluting and neglecting our land. We are reaping destruction because we have used and abused our land.
Take a look at your life. Are you prepared to reap the harvest that you have sown? Have you sown it in good soil, good ground or have you sown bad seed? What will you reap when the season arrives?
The season is near.
"Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers." Galatians 6:7
"Now this I say, he who sows sparingly shall also reap sparingly; and he who sows bountifully shall also reap bountifully. Let each one do just as he has purposed in his heart; not grudgingly or under compulsion; for God loves a cheerful giver." 2 Corinthians 9:6
