Harvest season is in full swing on the farms in our area, and farmers are working day and night to bring in their crops of soybeans and corn. This time of year always reminds me of the harvest Jesus spoke of in Luke 10, and how we must work as hard to reap those “crops” as the farmers do.
Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. – Luke 10:2
When thou cuttest down thine harvest in thy field, and hast forgot a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch it: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow: that the Lord thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hands. – Deuteronomy 24:19
He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him. – Psalm 126:6
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. – Galatians 6:9
Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant. – Robert Louis Stevenson
I am proud to have been born in Iowa. Through the eyes of a ten-year-old-boy, it was a place of adventure and daily discoveries – the wonder of the growing crops, the excitement of the harvest, the journeys to the woods for nuts and hunting, the joys of snowy winters, the comfort of the family fireside, of good food and tender care. – President Herbert Hoover
Time passed solely in the pursuit of pleasure leaves not solid enjoyment for the future; but from the hours you spend in reading and studying useful books, you will gather a golden harvest in future years. – Dorothea Dix
Love is to the heart what the summer is to the farmer’s year. It brings to harvest all the loveliest flowers of the soul. – Billy Graham
Your character is the harvest of your habits. – Adrian Rogers
