7 Laws of the Harvest Laws 4 & 5

We Reap More Than We Sow
Galatians 6:9-10
How fundamental this law is not only to the agricultural world, but also to almost every aspect of our lives, physically, emotionally and spiritually.  The harvest is always greater than the seed planted.
"You can count the number of seeds in an apple,
but you can't count the number of apples in a seed."

I. The Measure of “More”

This law says that man not only “can” have more but “will” have more based on what he sows.
Whatever a person sows, whether good or bad, he will reap the benefits or the consequences in a significantly greater proportion.

II. Negative Reaping of “More”

Mom said, "You better be careful, you are going to get more than you bargained for."
It is not just sowing of actions but attitudes that we reap.
What we sow in the mind and heart are most important.

III. Positive Reaping of “More”

If you want to be blessed, be a blessing.
God sacrificed his One Son in order to bring many sons into glory.
We Reap in Proportion as We Sow  II Corinthians 9:6-11
The fifth law deals with Human Responsibility and the scope of our planting.

I. The Truth of “Proportionality” 2 Corinthians 9:6

God does not tell us to give in order to get but to give in order to
give more!!

A good man is known by his character, not one act.
Minimum Effort does not equal Maximum Benefit.

II. The Impact and Scope of the Law of Proportionality

Scattering” results in only a portion of the seed actually planting.
The Full Harvest can only come with a Full Planting.
Full does not always mean volume but also variety.

III. Risk and the Law of Proportionality Ecclesiastes 11:1-6

Life's circumstances will always be there so don’t wait for the perfect  time to sow.

“Not doing wrong” is not “doing right.”
