Sowing Seeds of Righteousness

Love comes to those who have somewhere in the past, given out love or in other words, sown seeds of love. It happens that what we plant, we harvest – what we sow, we reap. So if you want hope – give it to someone else and when you least expect it, hope will be given back to you in full measure. Hosea 10:12 NKJV “Sow for yourselves righteousness; Reap in mercy; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the LORD, Till He comes and rains righteousness on you.”

Tomorrow brings with it much in the way of these things that we have planted before. What you experience today will depend upon what you have dealt out to others. It may be that you are now receiving kindness from someone you’ve known only a short time. This happens as a result of some kindness seeds you have planted in the past. Proverbs 21:21 NKJV “He who follows righteousness and mercy Finds life, righteousness and honor.”

It is only when you come to realise that what you give out will be returned to you in full, that you will be more careful in what you dish out to others. It is through this realisation that much progress will be made in your personal life. For those seeds you planted yesterday, are about to germinate and become either the fulfilment of something desirable or on the other hand not so desirable.

This is very important knowledge to you on your journey. This will help you to achieve either a peaceful existence or one that is wrought with chaos. The good news is, no matter what the situation, it is never too late to start sowing good seeds – seeds that you will enjoy – you can begin sowing seeds of righteousness. Proverbs 11:18-21 “The wicked man does deceptive work, But he who sows righteousness will have a sure reward. As righteousness leads to life, So he who pursues evil pursues it to his own death. Those who are of a perverse heart are an abomination to the LORD, But the blameless in their ways are His delight. Though they join forces, the wicked will not go unpunished; But the posterity of the righteous will be delivered.”

PS If you can make a commitment today to walk in truth, to not slander, criticise or judge others, and to show love, peace and goodwill to those around you, I guarantee that you will begin to reap a harvest of righteousness for which you shall be justified as radiant as the midday sun! Psalm 37:3-6 NKJV “Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday.” Amen!

All glory as always for these words goes to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.
