Hey brother don't you know
You will reap what you sow
What goes around comes around justice is slow
Good or evil what you plant is going to grow
What have you sown in your field what have you planted in your garden
Is it love from a heart that's pure is it hate from a heart that's hardened
What will be the fruit of your life when harvest time is come
Tares or wheat bitter or sweet what will you reap when day is done
What blossoms on your vine what springs forth from your ground
What you diligently cultivate shall ripen and abound
What will be the reward of your labor what will be the first fruit of your toil
What you nourish with your hand will flourish in your land thrive in fertile soil
Sow the wind reap the whirlwind sow your wild oats reap tragedy and shame
Sow sin reap emptiness within sow compassion you'll reap the same
Don't be deceived God is not mocked whatever you sow so will you reap
Sow to the flesh reap corruption sow to the Spirit reap life eternally

In the natural world, like produces like. Tomato seeds produce tomatoes, apple seeds, apples, grapes seeds grapes, weeds, weeds, thorns thorns, each after its own kind.
The same is true in the spiritual world, like produces like. Seeds of kindness produce kindness, compassion, compassion, hatred, hatred, each after its kind.
So if you want to reap good things in your life, sow good things. As in the natural world, it may take some time to see the seeds grow to maturity, but they will.
My prayer is that each of us will "Sow to the Spirit and reap life eternally"
