sowing and reaping
7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
sowing and reaping is a common incidence among people of all races. It comes in different ways. Whatever a man sows, he reaps even in large measure. The grace to sow good things may we receive from GOD today in Jesus Name!

How Can We Sow?
1. We must sow bountifully.
2 Corinthians 9:6:
“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously”
24 There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty.
25 The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.
2. We must sow cheerfully and not grudgingly.
2 Corinthians 9:7:
Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
3. We must sow at the right time
As long as the world exists, there will be a time for planting and a time for harvest. There will always be cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night.”
4. We must sow without expecting rewards from man
Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.
5. We must sow by faith.

So let us not become tired of doing good; for if we do not give up, the time will come when we will reap the harvest.
