It’s always interesting that when I hear about sowing and reaping, my thoughts turn to money. Yet Galatians shows me, it is so much more than that.
This scripture is Paul addressing our actions. Everything we do, has a result. Therefore, it’s more about understanding the natural law – that we reap what we sow. Melons after all, do not come from apple trees.
The Bible tells us that if we plant (metaphorically speaking) to please God, then the result is joy and eternal blessings.
Sometimes we can become tired in not seeing tangible results in our lives, or receiving the affirmation from others that we desire – which in turn means we become discouraged. That is when we start to sow into our own desires.
But we need to keep trusting God for the results that we will receive.
In due time, we will reap a harvest of blessing and it will be one of abundance because God never does things by halves!
