Why do farmers plant their seed? Because they expect to harvest a great deal more than they sow. A single seed that sprouts can yield dozens, scores, even hundreds of seeds. Jesus used the picture of a sprouting seed to show that when we allow God’s Word to produce good things in us, the results multiply. (Matthew 13:23) This principle is irrevocable; there is no escape, either for the believer or for the unbeliever. It is a law of life!
