Galatians 6:7, Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. 8For the one who sow to his own flesh shall from the flesh reap corruption,
but the one who sows to the Sprit shall from the Spirit reap eternal life. 9And let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we shall reap if we do not grow weary. 10So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all men and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
Proverbs 22:8, He who sows iniquity will reap vanity, And the rod of his fury will perish.
9He who is generous will be blessed, 9For he gives some of his food to the poor.
1 Corinthians 9:11, If we sowed spiritual things in you, is it too much if we should
reap material things from you?
At Cottonwood Creek, I am currently teaching a series entitled, “The Heart Of Jesus!” Sunday’s message reminded us that the heart of Jesus was that His followers sow seeds of the gospel as we make our journey through life. One thought on sowing seeds with our words and actions is that you always reap what you sow. If a farmer plants corn, he gets corn. If a farmer plants wheat, he gets wheat. If a farmer plants nothing, he gets nothing.
Solomon said in Proverbs 22:9, “He who is generous will be blessed, for he gives some of his food to the poor.” Solomon said, if we are generous we will be blessed. In other words, you reap what you sow. If you are mean, guess what? People will be mean back to you. If you are kind, people will be kind back to you. As you make your journey today, remember the principle, you reap what you sow!
Take care and have a blessed day!
