You Reap What You Sow
My girls and I planted our Summer garden today. It seemed a little bit funny to be planting a “Summer” garden while we were bundled up, trying to quickly plant before the rain came! They had so much fun digging the dirt, helping decide where to place the plants, and placing their pinwheels in the finished garden to add some color and whimsy! But now the really hard work begins – waiting! A garden is such a beautiful thing that teaches so many life lessons. Because we’ve planted zucchini, watermelon, tomatoes and various other vegetables and herbs, we are expecting to harvest zucchini, watermelon, tomatoes, etc. We will not grow what we did not plant! I’ve never seen blueberries grow on a tomato bush! You reap what you sow, or, you grow what you plant into your life. If you want the benefit of a healthy life, you must sow healthy seeds into your life. That means getting rid of hazardous relationships, toxic media, and polluted habits, and replacing them with life-giving relationships, pure information, and clean habits. “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, for that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.” What fruit are you producing in your life? Is it time to rip out some plants and sow some new seeds? If there are various attributes you are seeking in your life, start planting seeds that will yield that crop in time. You reap what you sow.
