“You reap what you sow”
It’s funny; we’ve all heard this statement before. Most of the time, they are words of comfort to those who have been hurt and wronged. The “bad person” is going to get what they deserve is generally the sentiment.
However, has anyone ever thought about it from the other side of the coin? There’s another way to look at it. We reap what we sow when we do the right thing and strive to live according to what is right and true. When we “put out” good, we get good in return. When we “put out” bad, well…..
Strive to be more positive and loving in areas of your life where you normally wouldn’t be, and you just might see more love and positivity coming back in areas of your life that you least expect. In truth, the experience never gets old. No matter how many times it plays out, it always feels good and replenishes a person’s faith. There’s no need to take anyone’s word for it. Find out for yourself if you’re sincerely interested in knowing.
Be more loving. Be more just. Be more understanding. Be more patient. Accordingly, you will reap that which you have sown. It’s another way to look at it when you read in the scriptures that God blesses those who are a blessing to others. Reaping what we sow isn’t supposed to scare us from doing wrong. It’s another one of God’s reminders of why it’s important to do right.
