Planting and reaping

Many years ago farmers in China developed the habit of eating the big potatoes they’d grown and keeping the small ones to plant as seed crop. However, over a period of years they noticed that the new potatoes were getting smaller each harvest, and eventually were reduced to something the size of marbles. It was then they came to understand a fundamental law of life: the quality of what you reap is determined by the quality of what you sow. If you squander your best now with no thought for what is to come, your left overs will then become the best you can anticipate.
The Bible says: ‘Don’t be misled: no-one makes a fool of God. What a person plants, he will harvest. The person who plants selfishness…harvests a crop of weeds…But the one who plants in response to God…harvests a crop of eternal life.’
