I love the way God’s economy works because I’m not a genius and His law of reaping and sowing is easy enough for a child to understand. If you went out to plant a garden, it stands to reason that if you only plant a few seeds, the harvest will be smaller than if you plant many. So it is with our lives spiritually. If we sow into our life things of the Spirit, eternal fruit will grow, but if we sow to the flesh, nothing lasting will come of it.
Too many times, we think this law of reaping and sowing won’t apply to us, that we can live as we please and escape the harvest that is coming. You would never plant an apple seed and expect oranges to grow, or strawberries and expect to harvest coconuts. We would do well to plant Spiritual seeds in our lives and then reap the eternal benefits.
And it doesn’t matter how long you have been sowing, just keep it up. We have a Father who is faithful to His Word!
