FALL / AUTUMN BIBLE VERSES
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted… Ecclesiastes 3:1-22
While the earth remains, seed time and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.” Genesis 8:22
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance; against such there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23
He which sows sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which sows bountifully shall reap also bountifully. 2 Corinthians 9:6
Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the Lord, till He come and rain righteousness upon you. Hosea 10:12
And God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth” and it was so… And God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:11-12
And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and sets up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those that know understanding… Daniel 2:21
When you reap your harvest in your field and have forgetten a sheaf in the field, you shall not go back to fetch it; it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow; that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands. Deuteronomy 24:19
