Autumn is a wonderful time to be reminded of the sowing and reaping principle found in God’s Word. It works every time. You will reap what you sow. “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Galatians 6:7
God’s principle works in every area of life. What you sow into your marriage you will reap. What you sow into your children you will reap. It also works in our spiritual life. “For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” Galatians 6:8
It also works in conjunction with our tithes and offerings; “But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.” 2 Corinthians 9:6.
And it works hand in hand with the preaching of God’s Word; “And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow..” Matthew 13:3
My latest article in Home School Enrichment deals with Sowing and Reaping in our children. In it I mention my dear grandfather, who has been with the Lord for many years now, which makes it even more special to me. The article is available for free online. You can find it here in the Sept/Oct 2010 Issue. I hope you will read it and take the time to sow into your life principles from God’s Word so you can reap a little encouragement for your day!
