Galatians 6:7: You Always Harvest What You Plant

Galatians 6:7, not only reminds me so much about Karma, it also serves as my blueprint on how to earn every single thing I want to have in my life.

Thus, if I want to have a good life and sufficient sustenance in the years to come, Galatians 6:7 reminds me to persevere and be industrious. How will I put food on the table if I don’t get my ass to work? In this life, food, water, house, and clothing don’t just appear in front of you.

If I want to achieve my dream of becoming a lawyer, I have to plant seeds of hard work and sacrifice. Becoming a lawyer comes not without a price. There are trade-offs along the way and right decisions to be made.

If I want people to respect me, I should do the same.

On the other hand, when you sow hate and evil, you get just the same.

Indeed, you always get the fruits of what you planted. Galatians 6:7 couldn’t have said it any better. When you plant trickery, selfishness, and injustice, prepare to reap them (Perhaps, even seven-fold!).

I embrace the teachings of Galatians 6:7, so should you.

Let this bible verse be a reminder that we always harvest what we plant. We may not reap the effects of our actions now, but we’ll eventually face that day.

Today, let us do our best to “plant” nothing but love, faith, and goodness. It may be challenging to do this for the rest of our life, but may the promise of harvesting God’s grace be more than enough for all of us to carry on.

May you have a blessed week ahead!
