I love how simple it is! Plant a seed, take care of it and that tiny seed will keep multiplying and producing. Why? Because it’s designed to.
It works in every area of our lives. The Bible says in Galatians 6:7 “For whatever a man sows, that and that only is what he will reap.”
What and who we welcome (sow), and allow into our lives is what is going to be produced in our life (reap). If we allow attitudes, actions or people into our life that aren’t good or profitable for our spiritual, emotional, mental or physical health then those are the things we will start to produce in our lives. Those “seeds” will in time start to produce a harvest – either for good or for bad depending on what we have sown.
We might not like that truth, but it is the way God has designed the world to work. As you sow so shall you reap. If we mix with cheats, liars, unkindness, selfishness, immortality, greed….those are the things we are bringing and sowing into our lives.
God says to choose life and blessing and to sow those things that are profitable and good for us, because He knows that’s what our lives will start to look like. He wants us to have a life full of joy, blessing and abundant life (John 10:10).
The great part about sowing and reaping is that if we know that some of the things which are being produced in our life are not good we only need turn away from them, (which kills off that bad seed like a spiritual weed killer) and start sowing what we want to produce. Then we’ll have a harvest of what we really want in our lives.
Prayer: Lord please give me the wisdom to choose wisely the things I allow to grow and multiply in my life and what I need to apply some “weed killer” to. Thankyou that everyday I get the opportunity to sow seeds of peace and blessing in my life and can expect a harvest of exactly that back. In Jesus name amen.
