You don’t want to sow those seeds.

“Do not be deceived: God is not to be mocked. Whatever a man sows, he will reap in return” Galatians 6:7, Berean Standard Bible.

Jacob tricked his brother, and years later, was tricked himself. My sister, let’s be careful of the seeds we sow. Let’s make sure we’re being God’s daughters, not in name only, but in our everyday lives. The same games we play, the same trouble we cause, the same homes we break up, the same disrespect we sow, and the same lies we tell will come back sooner or later. We will reap on the seeds we’re sowing–whether good or bad. The world calls it karma, but in God’s kingdom, it’s the law of sowing and reaping.

Our Father God is merciful, but He is also just. We can’t do whatever we want, treat people however we want, live however we want, and not expect the God who sees all and knows all to ignore spiritual law. Let’s be careful of the seeds we sow. We can’t do anything about the past. We can’t go back and redo it or take words back. But we can start by asking for forgiveness. We can begin by sowing good seeds and submitting to God’s way of doing things. We can begin by helping instead of harming. We can start by putting people and situations in God’s hands and trusting Him to work things out for His glory.

Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for speaking to my heart and giving me wisdom. I love you, Lord. Forgive me for any bad seed I’ve sown. I receive your love and forgiveness. I know better, and will do better with the help of your Holy Spirit. I receive your strength and wisdom to begin sowing good seed, humble seed, loving seed, mercy seed, truthful seed, obedient seed, all the right kind of seed that pleases you and brings you glory. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

  1. I’m struggling with the continue use of the word “law””

    Law and legalism died on the cross with Jesus according to scripture.

    I feel a more appropriate use of words could have been … instruction, commands, expectations, etc.

    This could be really confusing for someone new in their faith.

    1. Let me give some clarity. Just as natural human laws govern behavior on earth, God has spiritual laws and principles that govern the behavior of those who have been brought into His kingdom. One law that He mentions will forever remain as long as the earth exist is cold and winter, and seedtime and harvest (see Genesis 8:22). Let’s take a classroom for example. If we were to put a list of rules on the board. Not only would the rules but also the teacher. Jesus didn’t come to do away with the law but to fulfill it. And yes we are redeemed from the curse the of the law not the law itself (see Galatians 3:13). He didn’t save us so we no longer have to abide by any rules that are in place to govern our behavior. Christ came to settle it once and for all, and cause His Spirit to reside in us to help us by writing His laws on ours hearts and giving us the mind of Christ to serve Him with. Sowing and reaping is a law just like gravity is a natural law. If you were to fall off the side of a building, the law of gravity will go into effect whether you believe in gravity or not. Jesus didn’t come to remove the law of gravity. He came to give us the mind to not go off the side of the building in the first place. It is the same with the law of sowing and reaping. He didn’t come to remove it, but to give us the mind and ability to sow good seed so we can experience His results in our lives. Please let me know if this helps.

    2. Dear C. Cruse,

      Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ- Philippians 1:2

      Yes, with Christ we have a new covenant but she’s not referring to being under the law. We must not take one word out of context meaning something different than what it intended. Now, this is what confuse new believers and bring separation to the body of Christ. We all must be slow to speak, abiding in love, and properly edifying the body in unity.

      “Brothers and sisters, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against a brother or sister[a] or judges them speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it” – James 4:11KJV. I’m not saying you slandering or judging her, but you said you are struggling with the word “law”. This is New Testament using what you’re struggling with. Sister, we are on a journey going from glory to glory, we are ever learning in this kingdom for his wisdom cannot be fathom. “And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know”. 1 Corinthians 8:2 KJV.

      Our sister is using Galatians 6:7 in proper context. She is clear on sowing and reaping. If you sow apple seeds, you will not receive oranges. If you sow in the flesh, you will reap the flesh which is sin and death.

      “Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them” -Matthew 7:17-20Niv.


  2. I will be a good seed planter, in every sense of the word, with His help I know I can hold true to being good and speaking life giving seeds.

  3. Amen!!! I receive your strength and wisdom to begin sowing good seed, humble seed, loving seed, mercy seed, truthful seed, obedient seed, all the right kind of seed that pleases you and brings you glory. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
