Seedtime and Harvest Time

Leave a comment

GALATIANS 6:7-9 ESV

Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.

The old saying goes, “you reap what you sow.”  If we sow good things we will reap good things and the opposite is true.  This idea is repeated over and over again throughout the Bible.  But we might often forget the truth of this in our own lives and how it can affect several aspects of our lives.  One example that comes to mind is in relationships.  If we are suffering difficult times in our relationships, we should ask ourselves, “what kinds of seeds have I placed in the soil of our relationship to lead to this particular harvest time?  Did I plant seeds of jealousy, distrust, betrayal, anger, apathy, bitterness, resentment…etc.  Am I now going through a season of harvest time that reflects that crop?”

The good news is that we have the power to affect the harvest time at any time.  If we want a turn around then we need to start planting seeds that will lead to a new harvest.  We can plant seeds of love, gentleness, tolerance, patience, understanding, loyalty, sweetness, support, and acceptance.  And as surely as the truth in the principle of seedtime and harvest time, our crop will bring us to a new level in our relationship.   The truth is we have this power and we can start it at any time.  So why not start now?

Love and blessings! ❤
