WORLD EVANGELISM MINISTRIES

SOWING AND REAPING

 

Galatians 6:7-10

Isaiah 55:10-11

2Corinthians 5:10

Galatians 6:7

 

We reap what we sow, after we sow, and more than we sow.

 

Farmers know this, this is not a thumb rule it is a fact.

 

A rule of thumb – is a measurement by the thumb, hence, a primitive method, rudely practical, rather than scientific this is not a myth or a fable or a legend.

 

A legend is – a traditional, typically ancient story dealing with supernatural beings, ancestors, or heroes that serve as a fundamental type in the worldview of people, as by explaining aspects of the natural world or delineating the psychology, customs, or ideas of society.

 

This is not something to take lightly.  If you degrade people, loved one, and children you are sowing the wrong kind of seed. 

 

What we are today is the results of our past what people said to us, what we think of ourselves, and the way we lived in the past.

 

The only way to change the future is change today.

 

One example is people with money they did not start out with lots of money they saved (planted seed) a little at a time over the years it has multiplied (produced seeds) into a lot of money.

 

Other things happen the same way its what you plant (do) that determines the type of harvest.

 

By going the second mile and giving more than is required, do we reap dividends later?

If you only do what it takes to get by now, producing poor quality and living for payday, not much is going to happen to you that is positive.

 

We reap what we sow.  In the Bible, God has given us a principle that is both a warning and an encouragement.  Galatians 6:7

 

This is a law that applies to us whether you know about it or not.  People in the world know that giving has its rewards.  It affects everyone in every area of life, family work, and pleasure.

 

You have to think about this for a while to understand the full meaning of, “we reap what we sow, after we sow, and more than we sow.”  This principle is irrevocable there is no escape either for the believer or the unbeliever.  It is the law of life

 

We cannot fool God –

Galatians 6:7 states “Do not be deceived.” Deceived means – trickery or misrepresentation.  “God is not mocked” To treat with ridicule or contempt.  When you don’t take God serious about what He says about how we are supposed to live you are in contempt to God.

 

I do not want God to take His hands off of me.

 

We have to decide to believe the truth or we think we are an exception to God’s law.

 

2Corinthians 5:10 Puts all this in prospective.

 

We are the results of what we have sowed. 

If we do not change what we are doing now in 10 years we will be no better off than now.  Our bodies, families, and jobs suffer for the ungodly decisions we make.  We need to seek God and ask, “What would He do?”

Get guidance, think things out, and be methodical about the decisions you make.

 

There is a lot of truth in, “for what ever a man sows, that he will also reap.”

 

It is nice to know that when we labor under adverse conditions, and overlooked for promotion, faithfulness in such circumstances will provide a rich harvest.  God always keeps His promise.
