What you sow is what you reap.

Saturday 12th February 2011

I have friends that grow their own herbs, fruit and vegetables- so amazing! They buy the seeds, plant them at the right time, water them and wait for them to grow. How funny if you planted carrot seeds and ended up with tomatoes instead! Silly, right? You know that would not happen- the seeds you plant will be the plants that grow. In other words, what you sow is what you reap.

We understand this when it comes to nature, but many people may not understand this principle in their own lives. People can be cruel and unkind and then are shocked when people stop being their friend. People can be negative and criticise their friends and then wonder why they stop getting invited out. What you sow is what you reap.

Proverbs 11:25 (NLT) says, “The generous prosper and are satisfied; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.”

How can you be generous in the week ahead? Maybe you could send someone a card for no other reason than to tell them how thankful you are that you have them as a friend. Maybe you could pay for your friend’s drink, lunch or movie ticket the next time you go out without expecting anything in return. Maybe you could give someone your time who is sick or going through a tough situation and find out what you can do to help them get through. The possibilities are endless!

A Girl of Wisdom is a generous girl. She understands that what goes around, comes around… What you sow is what you reap.
