Sowing And Reaping

Galatians 6:7 KJV

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”

The Scriptures plainly tell us that we will reap what we sow. Literally, this applies to farming and planting crops. It also applies to giving money and being generous. But did you know that this principle also applies to the way we treat others?

We can sow and reap attitudes and words as well as a crops or finances.

The devil loves to keep us busy thinking selfishly, treating loyal friends as unimportant, sowing words of strife in our families, and thinking negative thoughts about bosses, pastors, etc. The devil wants us to sow bad seed in every single relationship.


So many people behave this way and then wonder why people don’t like them or treat them the way they want to be treated. The answer is simple, they are reaping what they’ve sown!

Let me ask you, what are you sowing today? No matter the person, no matter the relationship, sow love, sow forgiveness, sow kindness, and sow patience. You’ll find that as you treat others the way God wants you to, you will reap a life filled with encouraging friendships and wonderful, godly relationships.

Ecclesiastes 11:1tells us to;

“Cast our bread upon the waters: for we shalt find it after many days.”

Sow the right seeds in the lives of the people God has and will bring into your life and after many days you will reap what you’ve sown.

What to do? Love conquers all things as the bible puts it right. Learn to develop an attitude of doing all things out of a pure heart, with a clear conscience and with love. For you shall reap what you’ve sown in people’s lives.

Let Love Lead.


Stay blessed!
