Just like planting seeds to start a garden, the promise is true. What we plant is what we will reap. My husband knows this principle well as it applies to the garden. In previous years when preparing for a garden, he does not simply plant a small variety of seeds, no he plants expecting a huge harvest! Partly he realizes that only a certain amount of seeds will make it to be a large plant, but he also realizes the promise in the Bible of sowing and reaping.
