Sowing for a Harvest (Reblog)

As I read this thoughtful post by JD Blom, it reminded me of the universal reality of the law of sowing and reaping. You can’t expect an apple tree to grow oranges. You can’t be mean and miserable and expect people to be kind to you. Most people would see the logic in this and agree.

JD expands on some verses from the prophet Hosea and writes:

It is so easy to forget to be sowing.  It is so easy to become lackadaisical about where we set our eyes and start to become focused more on this world than on God, the source of our righteousness, and then wonder why we do not feel the steadfast love of the Father.  We missed the harvest because we failed to sow.

We need to remember that a harvest of value takes intention and effort.
