Your Spoken Harvest

The battle is hard and long when you’ve spoken words that are wrong, and planted seeds of disrespect. Words strengthen and bring life or words attack and bind; of which do you choose to speak? Which would you prefer to be said of you?

Do as you would have others do

For what you give will be given unto you, therefore, plant for a harvest of love.

If you speak richly to another, their life will be filled; they in turn will have much to give others, and the fruit you then harvest will be sweet.

Always when you have a need, look to another to plant a seed. When you then meet the need of another, your deed will bless a brother, and your own need will be met as well. Take no thought for your own want, for that is what I have in mind. Rather, be kind and you will soon find, that sweet words are all that you tell.

You choose the feast–

Words that are sweet or harvest yet a bitter pill. For if the words that you find are unkind, likely, you’re speaking them still. The spoken word is your planted seed–

Speak for a harvest you’d rather receive

“Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption; but he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. And let us not grow weary in well-doing, for in due season we shall reap, if we do not lose heart. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all men, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” Galatians 6:7-10

“Above all hold unfailing your love for one another, since love covers a multitude of sins. Practice hospitality ungrudgingly to one another. As each has received a gift employ it for one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace; whoever speaks, as one who utters oracles of God; whoever renders service, as one who renders it by the strength which God supplies; in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” I Peter 4:8-11

“Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God, and he who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God; for God is love.” I John 4:7-8

“So whatever you wish that men would do to you, do so to them; for this is the law of the prophets.” Matthew 7:12

“If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. ‘This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you.'” John 15:10-14

“Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap the fruit of steadfast love; break up your fallow ground, for it is the time to seek the Lord, that he may come and rain salvation upon you.” Hosea 10:12

 

 

Be A Friend

I was often ridiculed for keeping company with sinners, but that is where the harvest is. Look up–the fields are white; the harvest is ready. The time to reap is now!

Do not fear their faces. If they stare back at you, blankly, it is simply because they do not know.

You have been blessed with the wisdom of God, and the understanding of the Holy Spirit. Your eyes have been opened to the secrets of the Kingdom. You have been made to know and understand the deep mysteries of God. To the one who is not enlightened, well they are simply dumbfounded and don’t know how to respond.

What is there to be afraid of?

If they reject what you have to say, they are not rejecting you, but Me.

Do not be overly eager for the Kingdom.

First

Be a friend.

Leave the rest up to Me. I will put the right questions in their hearts. The Holy Spirit awaits with the answer within you. Your job is to look up; for the fields are white with harvest, and the time is now!

Leave the rest up to Me.

“And as he sat at table in the house, behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with Jesus and his disciples. And when the Pharisees saw this, they said to his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” But when he heard it, he said, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. Go and learn what this means, ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’ For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”” Matthew 9:10-13

“See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.” I John 3:1

“Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, then comes the harvest’? I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see how the fields are already white for harvest. He who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together.
