What Kind of Seeds Do You Sow in Your Life?

What kind of seeds do you sow in your life… in your future?

 

We need to understand that all things that we sow, whether directly or indirectly, we will eventually reap. How do we sow? Sowing is not limited to planting seeds, like what farmers do. During planting season, they will sow seeds and when the harvest season comes, they will harvest.

 

We sow time when we take an hour or two to listen to a friend who is going through a difficult situation in life. We sow love when we feed those who are hungry. We sow forgiveness when we try to understand those who have wronged us and forgive them. We sow happiness when we make other people happy. And these very seeds will eventually grow into trees, into good things, that we want to also experience ourselves!

 

Take note, I used the word “trees” because harvest is always greater than the seeds you have planted. Just like in the natural, a mango seed when sown will grow up to become a big Mango tree! It will not remain a Mango seed.

 

Like the farmers, when they sow, they expect that harvest time will come. The Bible says in Genesis 8:22, “As long as the earth endures, seed time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.”

 

The things that are happening in our life right now are the direct results of the things that we have done before, decisions that we made, the words that we’ve spoken, the seeds that we’ve sown. They all are coming back to us.

 

We do not have control of the past anymore but we can do something, right now, if we want our lives changed and live the kind of life God has promised us in John 10:10.

 

So, what kind of seeds do you sow today? Let’s be careful and wise of our actions and the words that we say. Yes, even our words can affect our future and that of our children. Words are also seeds.

  1. Hello,
    Thank you for your post and the truths shared. I am a big believer in the sowing and reaping cycle.
    Do you think that there are times when some of the things that happen to us (both good and bad), can be the result of what others have sown in our lives?
    This thought occurred to me after reading your post, so thought I’d ask/share it.
    Thanks once again for your insightful post.

    1. Hello, Ladycee! Thank you for dropping by and leaving your question. To answer that, I believe that in the natural, yes, sometimes we get to see the results that other people have sown in our lives – whether good or bad. But, how we respond to things coming our way solely depends on us. I love how one preacher tackled this topic. He said, “if a person knocks on your door holding a bag full of trash and he wants you to have it, are you going to take his trash?” For sure our answer would be a resounding “No!” Anger, jealousy, pride, and all other things that are not pure can be looked like that trash the guy is wanting us to take. If we allow the not-so-good (harvest) circumstances coming our way that were the direct results by what other people did (have sown) in our lives, it is like we are taking the guy’s trash off from his hands and bringing it inside our home.

      I pray that in my own little way, I was able to answer your question. And I speak Shalom over your life – nothing missing and nothing broken, in Jesus’ name!

      1. I don’t quite understand what you mean in your penultimate sentence. I understand that we can control how we allow ourselves to be impacted by what people do. However I do not feel that a negative harvest that has come about in our lives as a result of someone else’s actions means we have “allowed” it, or accepted trash.
        Thank you for your prayer. I always appreciate someone who takes the time and plants positive seeds of love through prayer.
        Have a blessed and peaceful week. 😃
