But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. (2 Corinthians 9:6)
[You reap what you sow, later than you sow, much more than you sow, and where you sow.]
The 3 laws of sowing and reaping are some of the most sure ones in the whole universe.
1) You always reap what you sow.
When you plant apple seeds, you get apple trees, never orange trees. When you sow good seeds (e.g. words of life and acts of kindness) into people lives, you will either get good fruit or no fruit, but never bad fruit.
2) You reap later than you sow.
When a farmer plants corn seeds, he doesn’t yell at the corn demanding it to come up right away. Rather, he knows that in due season the seeds will yield a bountiful harvest.
3) You reap much more than you sow.
When you sow one grain of wheat, you often get 100 grains back at harvest time. If you were guaranteed to get at least a 3,000% return on money you invested in a mutual fund, you’d invest in a heart beat. Well, God promises that when You sow good seed (your time, talent, or treasure) into good soil with a cheerful heart, then you will get a 30, 60, or 100 fold return.
Are you sowing bountifully into the lives of people you meet?
If so, are you doing this in faith, expecting God to multiply it?
Heavenly Father, I praise You as the greatest giver ever. For You so loved the world (me) that You gave your only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16). I praise You as the God of multiplication. May I sow lots of good seeds into the lives of people I meet every day. Thank You for Your promise to multiply those. Bless each person reading this message with a generous heart. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
