“Sowing and Reaping”

Key Verse

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” (Galatians 6:7).

Text — Galatians 6:6-10


Sowing and reaping is an agricultural practice that is often used as a spiritual principle. Tom Shadyac said, “You can’t sow an apple seed and expect to get an avocado tree. The consequences of your life are sown in what you do and how you behave.” While sowing refers to one’s action, reaping refers to the results of such action. There are various accounts of sowing and reaping recorded in the scriptures. Haman sowed a seed of hatred when he made gallows to hang Mordecai but reaped destruction because it was himself that was hanged on them. Joseph likewise was able to store food for a great famine that spread throughout the world, and he reaped the benefits by saving his people from starvation.

When youths sow seeds of rebellion, immorality and drug addiction, they in turn reap destruction and delusion in their final end (Hosea 8:7). On the same side of the ledger, those who sow the seed of obedience and purity reap abundance from God (Matthew 13:23). Always remember every action has a consequence.


Every action has a consequence.


You reap what you sow.

Prayer for today

 Lord, help me to sow the right seed.
