We reap what we sow sounds like a cliche but that could not be further from the truth. The truth of the matter is that EVERYTHING we sow we reap. Not only do we reap what we sow but the harvest is often times bigger than the seed we sow and that works both ways for the positive and the negative.
When I finally figured this out, I mean that this was not just a cliché, I started being very intentional about what I was sowing. For example, when somebody does us wrong and we feel like we just want to retaliate, whether it’s a good old tongue lashing, gossip about it, flat a few tires or whatever the case may be AND rightfully so, or so we think; because we are so hurt and feel like we have been violated to the utmost unjustifiably, but the reality is that if we go there we have just opened another season of sowing something that we are sure to reap at another time, it may be soon or it may be later, but harvest time is guaranteed; it’s a law, if we sow it, we WILL see it again. EVERYTHING reproduces after it’s own kind. If you don’t want to see it don’t sow it!
Now on the other hand, if it’s love, kindness, joy, grace, peace, mercy, favor, money or material possessions, etc. sow away, but don’t fall apart or stop believing in this principle if the person you’re sowing into does not respond accordingly, it would be nice, but it does not always work that way, just keeping working the principle. The more you work it consistently, you will begin to see the return on your seed sown. An important piece to know about this principle is that it will work for anybody, anytime, and anywhere.
The awesome thing about God is even when we blow it He is willing to forgive us. Even though we still have to deal with the consequences of the seed that we have sown, He promised us that He will NEVER leave us or forsake us. He will not abandon us. He will be right there with us. Now who wouldn’t serve a God like that!
Join me in making a conscious effort to only sow seeds that you want to reproduce in your life. Over the course of the next 3 to 5 days examine the seeds you are sowing and make any necessary adjustments accordingly.
I want to hear back from you; let me know if intentionally examining your seeds was helpful in anyway.
