Here are two proverbs about the Harvest. To our modern-day ears, they come across a bit biting, but then again, most proverbs do. That’s kind of the intention of a proverb!
The main point of the proverb is this: If you don’t work hard in preparing for something, you can’t expect great results. It’s a bit like another common Biblical/farming principle we’ve been talking about lately: you reap what you sow. If you sow laziness or you don’t plant anything, it’s going to be really difficult to reap something later.
We are in a phase of life as a church that has required A LOT of work by our leaders. For the past 12 months, it feels as if we’ve been constantly either in land negotiations, working with architects and contractors, or planning for Harvest. And yet we know that all the effort will be worth it! We’re planting the seeds of preparation at this time and praying that in the years to come, we reap a MASSIVE harvest through the people of Renovation Church!
Where is it in your life that you can trust God that if you put the work in now, you will indeed reap a harvest later?
