Relationship Building - Part I
What we receive in this life is the harvest of what was sowed in our life earlier. The result of a good education is a well paying job. On the other hand the result of a bad education is a laborious income. The seed we see here is a good education and the harvest is a good job. This is an example of a seed we sow in ourselves. We also sow seed in our relationship. If one sows love in a relationship, your harvest is love. If you want to keep your partner accountable for everything he/she is doing, questioning him/her “why?” you are sure to reap disgust and rebellion.
Galatians 6 7-9: “7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 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. 9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”
Sowing and Reaping is a law and ignorance does not stop it from operating. If you are ignorant of the law of gravity and you drop your pen, it still falls down. We are guaranteed of a harvest. We will reap a harvest resulting from what we have sown. We surely perish for the lack of knowledge.
Seed Selection: My dear friends there is no seed that is neutral. Every seed is empowered to bring it harvest in your life. Remember if you do put a grain on wheat into the soil the harvest is sheaf of wheat. You harvest is always about a hundred fold of what you have sowed, so sow the right seed into you relationship. We are always sowing, consequently we are always reaping. Old bad habit cause us to choose seed from the wrong bag.
Deuteronomy 30:19: 19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
The things that are happening to us now, are the harvest of thoughts and actions sown in the past. Today's thoughts and actions are seeds being sown for a future harvest.
