HARVEST – an accumulated store or productive result; the consequence of an effort or activity
A spiritual harvest is the result of God’s work in the heart of man. It is clear from the parable of the seed and the sower that some people’s hearts are good soil; when the Word of God is sown there, the person accepts it and continues to mature. There is nothing we can do to change the soil—that is God’s job (Ezekiel 36:26). However, we can be faithful to sow the seed, help the plants to grow, or reap the harvest. The process of spiritual growth and maturity, from the heart’s regeneration to the recognition of faith, is often a long journey.
Scripture: James 3:18
“Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.”
“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.”
— Robert Louis Stevenson
