Sowing and Reaping Illustration - The Seed and the Stalk of Corn

The illustration of the Seed and the Stalk of Corn highlights God's laws of sowing and reaping. "Be not deceived." We reap what we sow. This is true in the natural and the spiritual world. We reap more than we sow. Reap when? Reap in life, in death and through all eternity. See the illustration of the Seed and the Stalk of Corn below.

Fruits: SOWING AND REAPING



At one time we were in the home of one of our good members who lives just out of Chattanooga. He took me out to his barn and showed me a stalk of corn which contained seven fully developed ears. It was a wonder.

I said, "You planted one grain from which this came."

"Yes," he said.

"And how many grains on this stalk?"

He answered, "About 1,000 on each ear and seven ears, so about 7,000 grains."

Think of it, plant one grain and reap 7,000 grains. God says, "Be not deceived. God is not mocked for whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap."

Yes, we are all sowing. Sowing about all the time; all our conscious waking hours. We are sowing thoughts, words and deeds. We partake of the nature of that which we sow. All must reap.

"Be not deceived." We reap what we sow. This is true in the natural and the spiritual world. We reap more than we sow. Reap when? Reap in life, in death and through all eternity.
