You reap what you sow 

Galatians 6:7 explains that “A man reaps what he sows.” It is a principle that many people believe even outside of the Church. What are you sowing every day? What do you put out there? Are you aware of the dividends from what you plant? A farmer who sows corn will reap corn. A person who sows love will reap love. A person who sows hatred will reap hatred. It might not come into manifestation right away but it will show up eventually. Now, we sow things all the time. We don’t need to be in the fields to sow. We sow through our words and through our actions. To sow is to plant seeds. There are tons of seeds out there. There are the seeds of love, the seeds of hope, the seeds of malice, the seeds of deceit, the seeds of joy, the seeds of sorrow, the seeds of victory and the seeds of failure among many other seeds. Whether you are aware of it or not, you plant seeds all the time. You are the farmer of your life. There are good seeds and bad seeds. You can fertilize with God’s fertilizers or you can destroy with the enemy low quality products. Choose to sow the seeds that will produce bountiful crops. Crops that will feed you and others with abundance of blessings. 

The enemy likes to plant seeds in our minds but we actually do the sowing. He puts the seed of doubt in our head so that we end up with weeds that corrupt our harvest. Sow faith by acting on God’s Word. Sow those seeds of faith generously. Sow them everywhere you go. Be known for being a person of faith. When people give up on their crops, be the one to sprinkle their fields with words of faith. Be an encourager. Be a motivator. Don’t get intimidated by seasons of lack. What you plant will eventually grow. Winter might last a bit longer than usual but your spring is coming and with it new crops of blessings will be popping all over the place. Sow faith and you will reap faith. How? As you present faith to the world, the Lord will give you reasons to believe even more. He will act on your favor and what He does for you will boost your faith. 

I’ll never get tired of proclaiming that sowing love is the best thing you can ever sow. Sowing love takes on many forms. An act of kindness is a way of planting seeds of love. Taking the time to help someone is sowing love. Praying for someone is a big seed of love. Find a creative way to sow love. Find the best way that you can sow love. As you plant those seeds, you will be doing God’s work and you will be changing lives. Your seeds of love will grow into beautiful plants that will vibrate with life and hope. Plant hope. Let the seeds of hope fall into solid grounds. You will reap more hope for the future. 

Just remember that your words and your actions are seeds. Choose them carefully. What you sow is what you reap so you want to make sure that you are giving your soil the very best. Just be patient with it. Sometimes it will take a while but you will get results. Happy planting. It’s harvest time!
