Good Spiritual Ground -Part II: The Hundredfold Harvest.

In the Parable of the Sower, from Matthew 13, the Lord tells us that some seeds fell on good ground. And they yielded a crop: Some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

This Sunday, let us focus on the hundredfold harvest.

Looking back in the Bible, we can recall the example of Isaac in Genesis 26:12.

Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the Lord blessed him.

What makes this blessing special?

Doing a little research revealed that even an agriculturist would definitely agree that getting a hundredfold harvest is not that easy. I read that even with good soil, perfect sunlight and rain, getting a 90% yield is considered a good harvest.

Besides, what kind of land did Isaac sow in?

Genesis 26:2 says that Isaac sowed in the land of Gerar. Gerar was a very dry land. The soil of that land was such that even when all the climatic conditions are favorable, Gerar would yield only about 60% of crops.

Also, Genesis 26:1 shows that Isaac sowed in Gerar, not during favorable condition, but during the time of famine.

Yet, he was miraculously blessed with a hundredfold harvest. During famine, when everyone around him were literally dying due to lack of food, Isaac reaped a 100-fold harvest. This made him so prosperous that others in the land envied him (Genesis 26:13,14).

Who was this Isaac? Why should he receive such a special blessing?

Are you Isaac? Are you a hundredfold ground?
