The Reaping Comes Later Law

The Reaping Comes Later Law

You will usually reap later than you sow. 

In the American Midwest, farms are everywhere. You don’t have to be around a farm too long to learn that both growth and decay take time. The same is true in our spiritual lives. Perhaps this is the reason Paul warned that we shouldn’t be deceived. There’s a caution in sowing to the flesh. Nothing seems to happen right away. Marriages do not collapse in an instant. People become deceived and don’t realize what’s happening until they are trapped.


While we receive much immediate benefit when we sow into our local church, it doesn’t stop there. We continue to reap the harvest throughout our lives, because the seed continues to multiply.
