What you do get is the same kind of thing you put in. Put in gossip, criticism, fear…expect more. Put in kindness, encouragement, love… You get it.
Be careful what you sow and be careful how you sow – Generously? Sparingly? Not at all?
And what actually are these harvests?
Harvest of Souls – finish what He started. The sowing is done. Look, pray and go.
Harvest of Prosperity – not the health and wealth gospel. Generosity is so good for the soul, whether stuff or truth.
Harvest of Righteousness – put simply Christlikeness. Enduring hardship, produces a harvest of righteousness. Peacemakers raise a harvest of righteousness. Peace, the verb … Seeking it, pursuing it, making it, sowing it.
Of course with an inevitable Winter time on its way, let’s not miss the spiritual meaning of Fall. What gets you through Winter are fat reserves, our spiritual Winter times are so long, and grim because we haven’t prepared.
This season of the heart comes at the end of the book, if you would like me to summarize the other seasons, helping you to identify your season of the heart, let me know and I can write a post on it.
Or of course you could read the book!
