Golden heads swing in the breeze against the backdrop of a cloudless blue sky.
Each stalk the product of a tiny seed placed in well-prepared soil.
A seed can multiply itself thirty, sixty, or even a hundredfold.
Such is God’s law.
Contemplate, then, as one of His spirit children your potential as part of the greatest of all creations,
“Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
“And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side and the fowls came and devoured them up:
“Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:
“And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.
“But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.” (Matt. 13:3–6, 23.)
What is my potential if I would but cast out the stony places of my heart,
clean out the thorns,
cultivate deeply, nourish deeply, and irrigate deeply
so the Lord’s law of the harvest will multiply itself in me?
There is no limit to my potential! There is no limit to your potential!
So long as we conform our lives to the Lord’s law of the harvest.
“I, the Lord, am bound when ye do what I say; but when ye do not what I say, ye have no promise.” (Doctrine & Covenants 82:10)
God has bound himself to provide us with abundance
so long as we labor for that blessing by living His law in righteousness.
Who will forfeit the harvest? Not I, oh I hope, not I!
About the pictures: We (meaning the men) just finished harvesting roughly 300 acres of wheat. It’s bound for a dairy in Fallon. The dog in my niece’s. His name is Kurt and he acts just like Doug on the movie Up. The last few pictures, Truffle is showing how we like to take a head of wheat, grind it between our hands, and blow away the chaff so the wheat berries are left. Fresh wheat straight from the field is so yummy to chew on!
