“Do not be deceived, God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.”
A lot of us do not pay attention to the laws governing the earth. I guess the only law many of us care to know is the law of gravity, probably because we were taught that in school. But there are many other laws in operation, with as much effect as that of Gravitational pull.
One of such laws is the law of “Cause and Effect” or as the bible calls it, “Seedtime and Harvest.” Yes – and before your mind starts wondering, this isn’t a preaching on money and giving, because many of us have come to associate “sowing seeds and harvesting” to mean parting with our money.
Friends the law of cause and effect is an unfailing boomerang. And like all laws it takes effect whether you are aware of its existence or not. It is applied in the same measure to the rich and to the poor, the lord and the subjects, everybody eats from the same bowl.
Every day I see and meet people who expect love from others but they don’t give love to others nor themselves; people expect honesty from others but they themselves are not honest; people complain about their spouse unfaithfulness to them in their marriage, but they weren’t faithful in their relationships.
Many times I hear parents complain about their children’s attitude towards them, but they forget their attitude towards their own parents in the past. Folks the bible is very clear on this matter; “As long as the earth remains, seedtime and harvest….will never cease.” “Do not be deceived, God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.” “Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you”
Friends knowing this, let us be mindful of our words, and actions, because whatever you do, you do to yourself. I believe none of us will deliberately send out curses upon his/her life. Keep sowing the seeds of love, honesty, kindness, blessings…whatever is good. Maybe you are reading this and thinking, I have been doing good, showing love and care, when do I ever get to reap?
Don’t let others actions towards you dissuade you from you good deeds, because in the end it will come back to them in full measure or as Dr. Wayne Dyer puts it, “How others treat you, is their karma…” If you have been sowing and not reaping yet, think of life as a farm where a farmer planted seeds of corn, and another planted acorn. For sure the corn farmer will reap his, maybe even enter another season, before the acorn germinates. But the acorn farmer knows that his, is for long term. – Folks some seeds take a longer period before you harvest because they carry heavier blessings. Keep sowing good seeds…you will surely reap.
Live your greatest life!
