We Reap What We Sow

Exactly 2 weeks ago we planted sunflower seeds in a pot. I was surprised when just 4 days later the stems broke through the dirt! And now 2 weeks later we have begun to reap what we have sown! The children are so excited!

This makes me think about Galatians 6:7-10 "Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows."

Sometimes I am foolish and I forget that God cannot be deceived - he can see the temper that flares when my children make me angry - or the bitterness I feel in my heart when my husband offends me.

When you sow seeds of anger and bitterness - you reap a bouquet full of weeds and ugliness that no one wants to be near. What type of seeds are you sowing in your life? Are you sowing seeds of love, joy, peace and patience or are you sowing seeds of bitterness, anger, discontentment and frustration?

"The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction."

Everything our selfish heart desires will deceive us into believing that these teeny tiny seeds are little and acceptable. But like the sunflower seed that is teeny tiny - but one day will be a HUGE plant - so are our "small sins" - once they take root and grow - they become huge and reap destruction!

"the one who sows to please the Spirit, from that Spirit will reap eternal life."

When we live a life - yielded to the Holy Spirit and we sow seeds from the Spirit like kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control - we reap eternal rewards!

So..."Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."

If you are feeling weary as a wife, mother, friend and homemaker - do not give up. Continue to yield yourself to the Spirit and discipline yourself to deny your selfish nature. In no time at all, tiny sprouts of inner beauty will be born - and you will mature into a beautiful Godly virtuous woman! We reap what we sow.

Walk with the King!
