Work Now – Reap Later

“I Corinthians 9:10 declares, he that ploweth should plow in hope, because we do not reap the harvest at the moment we have plowed, rather the produce comes in after the ground is prepared, the seeds have been planted, the soil has been watered, the weeds have been pulled, the temperature cooperates, and the sun has supplied its energy. Still, the hope was also planted on the very day of tillage in the heart of the farmer, for he has expectation for a future crop, to give him hope in his final outcome (Jeremiah 29:11). A farmer sows and cultivates with the hope that there soon will be a bountiful harvest for him to reap while his work continues.” ~LMJ~
