It’s amazing how the sowing and reaping process works. We have the ability to sow seeds in our lives, as well as the lives we touch–and we will always harvest exactly what we sow. Generally speaking, each seed has the ability to produce in abundance therefore we will also harvest more than we planted. So the question becomes, what are we planting? Are we conscientious about the seeds we plant? Everyday whether we are aware of it or not, we are shaping our futures simply by the seeds we sow.
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. Genesis 1:11 KJV
This is a principle that was established in the beginning and is true, not only for plants, but for us too.
Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. Galatians 6:7 NLT
Actually, this is great news because it means that just as a gardener can make choices about what plants to grow in his/her beautiful garden, so can we. So I will ask again, how do we each envision our garden and what seeds are we planting to receive our desired harvest?
I will continue this topic next week. But for today, I just wanted to remind us all to plant good seed.
