Life is filled with choices, choices that affect us on an everyday basis in everything we do. 2 Corinthian 9:6 “But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.” Galatians 6:7 says, “Be not deceived: God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” That means our everyday choices are not without significance. Our choices affect us and others in dramatic ways whether we see it or not.

Here are a few excerpts from this 120 page, easy-to-read book The Seven Laws of the Harvest.

p.47  “Too many believers are sowing wild oats through the week, and then going to church on Sunday and praying for a crop failure. But it will not happen, for God will not be mocked by man – any man.”

p.51  “Because God does not judge sin instantly, men think they are getting by with sinning, while in reality they are not getting by with anything.” (Read Ecclesiastes 8:11)

p. 85  “The problem of the average believer today is not a lack of knowledge, but the application of truths he already knows. He is carrying around many facts he has never integrated into his life.”

p. 96 “Borrowing evil from tomorrow is a sin and a trap from Satan. Since the mind treats tomorrow’s burden as a reality and no grace is given to bear it, we feel God has forsaken us. We then doubt God’s goodness and love, and by so doing, cut ourselves off from the only One who can help us: The Lord knew what he was doing when he told us:”

“Take therefore no thought for tomorrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.  Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.” Matthew 6:34. We cannot do anything about last year’s harvest, but we can do something about this year. What kind of seeds are you sowing in the soil of your life?

Ephesians 5:15 “See then ye walk circumspectly not as fools but as wise, Redeeming the time because the days are evil.” If you plant to please God, you’ll reap joy. You can purchase this book new at www.Christianbookstore.com for $8.79.
