You REAP What You SOW!
"You will NEVER be WITHOUT what you 'consistently' SOW!" God spoke these words to me one day as I was meditating on His GOODNESS, words that I am very mindful of everyday that He allows me to see. What He was saying to me that day is that I will ALWAYS see and experience in my OWN life what I 'consistently' sow into the lives of others. He gently reminded me of these very words again this morning. I purposefully, with intention & a PURE motive, sow into the lives of others DAILY; love, encouragement, empowerment, inspiration, hope, joy & LOTS of smiles (I've been told by others that my smile is 'anointed' and that it is a 'gift' from God to brighten the day of others)! In the words of India Arie, "It doesn't COST a thing to SMILE!"
"Whatever a man soweth (sows and KEEP ON sowing) is what he will HARVEST!" (Galatians 6:7)
The word 'whatever' here in this verse lets us know that this law (principle) applies to more than just sowing money, it refers to ANY seed that we sow. And the word 'soweth' denotes a continual, consistent process not just a 'one-time' act. What God spoke to me that day is totally consistent with His Word.
It baffles me how some people EXPECT to receive something from life, and more specifically from OTHERS, what they have not sown. There are those who 'expect' love while sowing (spewing out) hatred and bitterness. They expect peace and unity while sowing chaos and division, expect support while sowing no support, expect honor while they are dishonorable and expect friends while not showing themselves friendly......on a CONSISTENT basis! What we want to HARVEST in our OWN lives, we must first SOW into the lives of others and do so with pure motives! A 'contaminated' seed produces a contaminated harvest! There was a time in my life that I TOO, unconsciously, 'expected' to receive something that I did not 'consistently' sow! I no longer EXPECT from others what I have not 1st SOWN. Access today your relationships and your expectations of them and see if you are expecting what you have NOT sown into them. BECOME TO OTHERS WHAT YOU EXPECT OUT OF THEM!
I find myself today NEVER being WITHOUT love, encouragement, empowerment, inspiration, hope, joy and LOTS of smiles because I CONSISTENTLY sow these things into the lives of others! Be mindful of what you sow, it will be your HARVEST!
