{sowing&reaping}

Posted: 03/17/2009 in learning, spiritual growth

this week we have a guest speaker at our church, ben merold. i’m so impressed by him.

last night ben preached 6 laws of nature. 

6 laws of nature

1. we reap what we sow. 

2. we reap  more than what we sow. 

3. we reap later what we sow. 

4. ignorance of what you sow is no excuse. 

5. you have to sow in your area of need. 

6. you have to sow everything in order to reap something. 

this was huge to me. yes i knew this. but had i ever really really thought about it? nope! 

check it.

1) if you plant/sow corn, you’ll reap corn. that’s a given right. 

2) farmers, get this concept. of course the driving force to sow is for the reaping. 

3) so i expect that whatever i sow will be reaped fairly soon from the sowing, nope, it’s whenever God wants it to be. it’s not the first sunday of everything month or whenever we deem it to be time. 

4) all this technology and having all these resources at our fingertips may have a down fall or two; we are now responsible with the stuff we learn or the knowledge we have. we can’t play the “ignorance” card. 

5) so say my area of need is money. if i don’t sow in the area of money (giving money), i will not reap in the area of money! he told a story of a lady who was very poor and said she never was given money. and he asked her if she ever gave money and she said she never had much to give… -give a little then…

    this was my mother’s favorite saying! You reap what you sow….I remember wondering what in the world she was talking about! lol It was directed at my older brothers and sisters I think and it was supposed to make them be good…hmmm….not sure they got it! lol Then when it was my turn and was a time when I would have understood, she wasn’t there to quote it to me. I’d say money and then relationships are the trickiest….so easy to get upset and do/say things w/out thinking it through…the result….the debt trouble our country is in and all the broken relationships in marriage etc…sad…this is a good message for people to hear.
