Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could learn from our mistakes, never repeat bad behavior, and ultimately avoid all pitfalls? Even better than that, wouldn’t it be great if we could learn from the mistakes of others? How shrewd we would be… if only we could. Unfortunately, it is in our nature to do the opposite of what would be advantageous, even when we know that trouble lurks close by. It’s not that we never tend the garden, we just tend to nurture the weeds. Sounds pretty grim but there is hope and help for all of us. The Word says in Galatians 6:7, “Do not be deceived. God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.” Simply stated, whatever you sow, you will reap. God’s principles work!! If I go out and plant corn in my yard, I have no reason to believe that watermelons will come up in due time. If I planted corn, I will reap corn! In the same way, if I allow negativity, disobedience, sin and strife to be sown into my life, I have no reason to believe that I am going to reap a life filled with peace and love. According to this scripture, you can actually take part in your own destiny. Begin to see the end result that you desire and sow accordingly. Cast things in your favor! Start hanging around people who are a positive influence; people who can help you step up. Change bad behavior, guard your heart and the words you say. Your life is a product of what you do habitually, not what you do occasionally. You may need to change some habits, but sow for a better future. You will bless others and be a blessing!
