“Do not be deceived, … for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.”Galatians 6:7
“When men sow the wind it is rational to expect that they will reap the whirlwind.”Frederick Douglass
Lessons in Leadership- “The Law of the Land and the Law of Life”
As the familiar saying goes- “whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.”
The “Law of the Land” says that a farmer cannot sow apple seeds and expect to reap oranges. Whatever a farmer sows; in time, that is what he will reap.
Just as true is the “Law of Life.” If you sow positive things, you will reap good things. If you sow negative things, you will indeed reap bad things. You can only reap what you sow.
Of course, in addition to sowing you must also weed. The world is constantly trying to sow weeds in your field. You must learn to identify the weeds and pull them up before they choke out your good seed. Don’t let the weeds of blame, anger, frustration, self-pity, greed, self-centeredness, etc. rob you of reaping a plentiful crop of the best things in life.
