Spirit And Life Devotional: Sowing And Reaping

Must read

[pull_quote_center][/pull_quote_center]“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.” Galatians 6:7 NKJV

When God says don’t be deceived, it means don’t be delusional; it means don’t have a false belief or opinion other than what He has said. So when He says that you will reap whatever you sow, He means exactly that, so you better take it seriously. From that verse, it means that you can determine what you will reap by sowing the right seeds. If you want love, love others; if you want forgiveness, forgive others; if you don’t want trouble, don’t cause trouble for others; and if you want sincerity, first be sincere: yeah, “whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.”

Jesus told a story of a servant who owed the king ten thousand talents; that’s millions of US Dollars today: the servant was unable to pay, so the king commanded that he, his wife, his children and every other thing he had be sold in order to recover his money. The man pleaded and appealed for more time; the king obliged and even cancelled his debts! But guess what, that same man went to a man who owed him a hundred denarii, took him by the throat, demanding for repayment. And despite his pleas, the servant got him arrested until he repaid his debt. When his fellow servants saw what he did, they were very grieved, and told their master what he did. The king, after he had called him, said to him, ‘You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you begged me. Should you not also have had compassion on your fellow servant, just as I had pity on you?’ His master was angry, and delivered him to the torturers until he should pay all that was due to him. The man reaped what he sowed.

I encourage you today to always sow the right seeds, especially in your relationships with other people. Be good to them, if you have workers treat them fairly; do your work faithfully; love your spouse; make people around you happy; help people as much as you can. As you do these, you can be assured of a life filled with the goodness and blessings of God. Amen.
