It is said that farmers in ancient China began eating the big potatoes they produced and using the small potatoes for seed. After many years of this practice, they learned a valuable lesson about the laws of nature. After generations of planting small potatoes, they had reduced them to the size of marbles.
You can’t keep all the best potatoes for yourself and use the leftovers for seed. The harvest will always reflect the planting.
The same principle of the harvest holds true when we try to produce spiritual crops. Gal.6:7 says, “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.”
What kind of spiritual seeds are you sowing in your neighborhood, at your job, at your school, in your family and in your church? Hopefully, it’s not small potatoes!
Gal.6:9 says, “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
