This is our recent garden harvest, and we are so thankful. I’ve been thinking about how we reap what we sow by God’s grace. There is so much wisdom in that. I can’t reap raspberries from our garden because I haven’t sown them. The Bible uses this image a lot – if we sow goodness, spiritual seed, seeds of peace then we harvest justice and goodness; if we sow evil, neglect, anger then we harvest terrible things; if we harvest sparingly we reap sparingly; if we harvest abundantly we reap abundantly; and sometimes we harvest blessings that someone else planted by God’s grace.
It makes me wonder – what can I plant today that will yield a harvest of goodness and blessings for others?
What can you plant today?
