The Laws of the Harvest

Sunday’s Message on Galatians 6:7-10 {in 12 tweets}

 

#1. We give & not get, plant & not produce, work & not win, invest & not get returns, sow & not reap. We become weary in doing good.

#2. What we become tomorrow is largely dependent upon what we sow today. Our choices matter.

#3. We reap what we sow, more than we sow, later than we sow. This law of the harvest is irrevocable and unstoppable.

#4. Living a life of sin and expecting to inherit heaven is like planting cockle burrs and waiting for roses.

#5. The value of the harvest is always greater than the cost of the seed. Delayed gratification creates deepened transformation.

#6. There are two buckets we draw from each day: seeds to please ourselves & seeds to please God. Which harvest will we choose?

#7. When we focus on the harvest and who we want to be tomorrow, God gives us clarity on what actions to take today.

#8. We reap the right others sow, and we reap the wrong others sow. Does the company we keep grow us or slow us?

#9. Sow a thought, reap an act. Sow an act, reap a habit. Sow a habit, reap a character. Sow a character, reap a destiny.

#10. When we do good to BE good, we become weary. When we do good because HE is good, we find strength.

#11. God created a divine loophole in the law of the harvest – Jesus reaped what we sowed, so we could reap what He sowed.

#12. See a need, plant a seed. Do good to the person beside you & in front of you & just wait, the harvest will come.
