THE LAW OF SOWING AND REAPING
TEXT: Galatians 6:6-18 M/V: Gal. 6:7,8
Some Life Implications Of The Law Of Sowing And Reaping
There are some basic truths about the law of sowing and reaping, among which are:
What we will be tomorrow will depend on what we do today. The right or wrong choices that we make today will affect the rest of our life. It is important that we sow good seeds of obedience to the word of God. In the future, they will blossom into a harvest of righteousness, for us and our generation. As the saying goes, “sow a thought, reap an act; sow an act, reap a habit; sow a habit, reap a character; sow a character, reap a destiny.
Reaping is not always immediate. So, there is the danger of growing in well-doing because of opposition to good in our own nature or the outward hindrances we may meet from a gainsaying and persecuting world. But we must remind ourselves of the importance of perseverance. God promises that we will reap if we persevere.
There is no shortcut to prosperity. Our hands must continually be on the plow as an opportunity or the season provides us to sow by doing well to others and working hard. While it is the time of sowing, let us sow the good seed; and let our love be, as the love of Christ, free and manifested to all. Let us help all who need help according to the measure of God-given in our lives. But let our priority be people of the household of faith.
