Sow Good… Reap Blessing
As I mentioned in yesterday's devotional, God wants to bless your life, and the richer, more frequent blessings come to those who do a particular thing. We find that thing in Galatians 6:9-10,
And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.
The seasons of blessing come due more often to those who consistently sow, to those who seize opportunities that are afforded them to do good. Notice again in verse 9, Let us not grow weary while doing good. Verse 10 says, Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all.
This same truth is reinforced by verse 7, which states,
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
If we sow good, we will reap good. A season of blessing will come.
What many Christians tend to do is stand before a field in which they planted no seed, and pray, "God, give me a miracle harvest."
Now, God is God, and He certainly can do things out of the ordinary. But He also works according to laws and principles that He has set into motion. One of those laws is the law of sowing and reaping.
Whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap. Therefore, do not grow weary while doing good. In due season, you will reap, if you do not faint. When you have opportunity, do good. Get some seed in the ground.
Because the richer and more frequent blessings come to those who sow good.
