When The Harvest Comes

When The Harvest Comes

The principle of sowing and reaping is one that is fascinating and applies to everyone – Christians and non-Christians alike. As we sow we would reap, an irrevocable fact. A farmer that goes to their farm and plants corn and will reap corn, tomatoes will also produce of its kind. A farmer can’t plant groundnut and expect to harvest cashew because the former lacks the DNA of the later.  The principle does not only apply to farming but every area of our life be it in, relationships, finances, career, etc.

I was seated and having a conversation with my boss and she shared the story of how you cannot sow the wind and expect a bumper harvest of goodies but wind. What you are right now and what you will become 2, 5, 10, 50 years from now is dependent on the kind of seeds you are sowing now. Are you sowing the right seeds? Be sincere to yourself and if the seeds you are sowing or sowed in the past is not producing the harvest you would like, now is the time to replant because when the harvest comes, it would be a reflection of the seeds you planted.

The harvest will come, trust me and is always more than the seed. When the farmer puts a few seeds in the ground, the harvest is not the number of seed but more than was planted. A single seed that sprouts can yield dozens, scores, even hundreds of seeds. The same applies to us, do not think the bad seeds are small because the harvest will be in multiples of bad, plant good seeds instead.   Finally, do not be deceived by the fact that a wrong seed planted is not immediately producing bad harvest or a good seed planted is not producing a good harvest. Unlike plants in the real sense that has a calendar for annual yields, the harvest of life – good or bad – has no set timetable. Sometimes the harvest is quick other times it takes a long time but, do not be deceived harvest season will come and when it does come, I hope you planted the right seeds for the dividends you desire.
