VIDEO Twenty Bushels of Apple Seeds

He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give. 2 Corinthians 9:6-7

John Chapman, known as Johnny Appleseed, traveled throughout the Midwest, planting seeds for 45 years. It’s estimated he spread more than twenty bushels of seeds, and each bushel contained an estimated 300,000 seeds. During the Prohibition, the government cut down most of his trees to curtail hard cider. But one tree survives to this day. It’s in the courtyard of the Johnny Appleseed Museum in Urbana, Ohio. It’s old, but several branches have been grafted onto other trees, so the harvest continues.

Chapman knew the relationship between sowing and reaping. We always reap more than we sow. That is the harvest principle, which works with the concept of giving. When Paul mentioned sowing and reaping in 2 Corinthians 9, he had in mind the sowing of our financial gifts.

This doesn’t mean we’ll come into lots of money if we give to the Lord’s work. As many people have experienced, wealth can be fleeting, but if we faithfully sow into His kingdom, we will reap blessings in both time and eternity far beyond our original gifts. Choose an investment that is reliable, is guaranteed to never fail, and yields great rewards: Invest in the kingdom of God.

Giving to the Lord is but transporting our goods to a higher floor. Quoted by Paul Lee Tan
