Remember this saying, ‘A few seeds make a small harvest, but a lot of seeds make a big harvest.
– II Corinthians 9:6 (CEV)
Read: II Corinthians 6:9-12; Genesis 4:1-12
Another law taught in the Bible is the principle of the Initial seed: The magnitude and quality of the initial seed always determines the magnitude and quality of the final harvest. As we approach the word of God, we must recognize that God’s spiritual laws are closely related to natural laws. If you want an orchard full of apples, you do not go out with just a handful of seeds; you go out with enough seeds to plant an orchard. Initially you had apple seeds, but eventually each seed becomes a tree. It stands to reason that a lot of seeds will bring a bigger harvest. Many times, we deceive ourselves; we convince ourselves that we have sowed a lot and expect a rich harvest. However, we get unhappy when our harvest just comes trickling in. One of the things we must check is our initial seed. The interesting thing is that during sowing season everyone looks busy; but busy doing what? Are we busy, looking busy, or are we actually taking time to sow the kind of quality and quantity of seeds that will guarantee the kind of harvest we desire? Jealousy and envy become strong feelings when your brother’s harvest is larger than yours. Abel ‘sowed’ a pleasing sacrifice but Cain did not. God accepted Abel’s sacrifice but refused Cain’s. And as a result, envy found a way into Cain’s heart. Whatever you are sowing, make sure it is acceptable and that it is the right kind, amount and quality of seed to bring in the harvest you are anticipating. I can see you with a bountiful harvest in this season, in Jesus’ Name. Amen. And that harvest will not depart from your house but will increase until it is overflowing, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
