Mark 4 describes the different types of ground that God’s Word can be sown into.
1 Peter 1:23 says that God’s Word is an incorruptible seed.
Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the Lord, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.
Break up the hardened parts of your heart. What are you reading, listening to, watching? What needs to be uprooted so that your heart will become good ground for the seed of God’s Word?
Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes. Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.
Whatever kind of seed you sow is the kind of harvest you will reap. They had sown much and reaped little, because the ground of their heart wasn’t that good.
Because of this, God told them to consider their ways.
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
If you get the right seed, you’ll get the right harvest. It’s your heart that determines wether you’re sowing into the flesh or the spirit. What do you have an appetite for?
You’ll get control of the harvest when you get control of the seed.
Everything in life is a seed. Start sowing what you want to reap. When you start treating everything as seed, life can get really exciting.
