What Are You Sowing Today?

Living in Saskatchewan we are all familiar with sowing and reaping. But did you realize that this principle is throughout the bible and affects every aspect of our lives? Isaac sowed in the land and reaped a hundred-fold return, God blessed him (Gen 26:12).

“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal, it shall be measured to you again" (Luke 6:38; KJV).

It’s Interesting that how we give affects how we receive.

In Galatians 6:7 we are told that God is not deceived, we reap what we sow. Sowing and reaping affects every aspect of our lives not just farming and financial or material giving. Job lamented that: “they that plough iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same (Job 4:8). Hosea observed that those who have: “sown the wind”; “reap the whirlwind” (Hos 8:7). In Proverbs chapter 18 and verse 24 we read that to have a friend we must be a friend. Again, in Proverbs chapter 18 and verse 21 we are taught that; “death and life are in the power of the tongue”. Our words reap a harvest good or evil.

Have you noticed that everything reproduces after its own kind? I think a pig would be surprised if it produced chickens. Let’s meditate on our giving and receiving; sowing and reaping today. Let’s do a checkup today; we need to be reminded that how we give in every aspect of our life determines what we will receive, good or evil.

Sowing and Reaping

"Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." (Gal. 6:7b; KJV.) The Bible has plenty to say about sowing and reaping; in Matthew 7:2 Jesus was teaching his disciples and he told them not to criticize others because: "with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again”.

According to this principle then if we sow love we will reap love, if we sow forgiveness we will reap forgiveness (Luke 6:37) and so on. The same principle is applied to what we hear (Mark 4:24); the amount of time we put into attending to the word determines how much we will receive from it. It also applies to finances; In Luke 6:38 Jesus tells us that if we give it will be given back to us in the same measure with which we gave.

In 2 Corinthians. 9:6 Paul wrote that we can either give sparingly or bountifully but that is also how we will reap. These scriptures are all telling us the same thing. Jesus, our supreme example, sowed his life so we could become children of God and enjoy everlasting life

I encourage you today to sow into someone’s life and enjoy the blessing that comes from that.
