Sow and Reap
A person can never truly appreciate the bloom of a rose without the work of another hand. There is always someone who has planted a seed, watered the seed, weeded the garden, taken care of the soil, and harvested the plant.
We all need to make sure that in the act of our sowing, we are sowing for the Lord. He is the One who sees our heart and knows our intentions.
May we sow out of the overflow of goodness that God has done in our own lives. May we plant seeds of joy, peace, and love. May we not look for the harvest, but know that God has plans that far exceed what we can comprehend.
Luke 6:38 … Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom.
John 4:36-37 … And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together. And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.
2 Corinthians 9:6 … But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.
Galatians 6:8 … For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
James 3:18 … And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace. ♥
