in Saskatchewan, with our vast farmlands, we are all familiar with sowing and
reaping. But do we realize that this principle is throughout the bible and
affects every aspect of our lives? “Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received
in the same year an hundredfold: and the Lord blessed him” (Gen 26:12; KJV).
That’s a good crop!
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
Interesting that how we give affects how we receive.
Galatians 6:7, we read that God is not deceived, we reap what we sow. Sowing
and reaping affect 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; KJV). Hosea observed that those who have: “sown the
wind”; “reap the whirlwind” (Hos 8:7; KJV). In Proverbs 18:24, we read that to
have a friend we must be a friend. We also know that our words can reap a
harvest of good or evil (Prov 15:1).
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 lives determines what we will receive, good
or evil. Is that an amen or an ouch?
