4 Laws of the Harvest

4 Laws of the Harvest

By Pastor Raymond Wicks  |  September 22, 2020

Galatians 6:7-9, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.  For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.  And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”

1.  We Reap Where We Sow

 Where is our emphasis?  Is it in:

  •         Family
  •         Ministry
  •         Work
  •         Finances
  •         Relationships
  •         Recreation
  •         Spiritual
  •         Evangelism
  •         Giving

We will reap where we sow.  Let’s not expect to reap in a field where we did not sow.

2.  We Reap in a Different Season Than We Sow

“In due season…”  Let’s not get weary in well doing.

We live in a “now” generation.  Farmers usually have to wait months, sometimes years, after planting seeds before reaping their harvest.  

Parents, don’t give up.  Don’t get weary.  Continue training your children even in the difficult times.  Have patience that the right harvest will arrive in due time.  

Make our marriage a priority.  Men, treat her like a world class business associate.  Ladies, treat him with respect and love.  You may be surprised by the wonderful results.

The Bible teaches that if we faithfully witness with compassion for the Lord, we will eventually reap.  Psalm 126:5-6, “They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.  He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.”

Work diligently.  Faithfully tithe.  Give offerings and alms.  Be patient and trust His Word.  He will bless in due season!

3.  We Reap What We Sow

Galatians 6:8, “For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.”

Flesh reaps flesh.  Spirit reaps spirit.

Sadly, many people expect something different than what has been sown.

Job 4:8 says, “Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same.”

Hosea 10:12-13 says, “Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the Lord, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.  Ye have plowed wickedness, ye have reaped iniquity; ye have eaten the fruit of lies: because thou didst trust in thy way, in the multitude of thy mighty men.”

Saved people have their old nature and, thankfully, a new nature.  “…and these are contrary the one to the other…”  Galatians 5:17

To sow bad things is not hard.  Those who try to maintain a beautiful lawn know that dandelions and crabgrass can grow naturally without effort.  

That is why it is easier to stay home Sunday morning than to go to church.

It is easier to criticize than to build up.

It is easier to watch TV than to read the Bible.

It is easier to shop than to tithe.

To sow good things will take desire, a plan, and work.  But the investment will be worth it.  

Sow love, joy, truth, mercy, forgiveness, and longsuffering, and you can look forward to reaping the same.

4.  We Reap More Than We Sow

One kernel or seed of corn reaps one full ear of corn, which yields an average of approximately 1056 kernels each.  

What we sow is often multiplied in ourselves, our family, or those around us. 

  • Selfishness
  • Alcoholism
  • Drugs
  • Lying 

OR

  • Kindness
  • Forgiveness
  • Giving
  • Service
  • Godliness

We cannot sow like the devil and expect the blessing of God!

Our godly works will be rewarded and multiplied on earth and in eternity.

Be intentional on where and what you sow and expect a wonderful harvest!
