The Bible talks about sowing and reaping, and Galatians 6 says, “we shall reap what we have sowed”.
Some of us have given to charities or relief funds and yet, we feel as if we’ve not been blessed in return. If God’s Word never fails, then how is this possible?
There are several reasons why we may not see the blessing of reaping what we have sown.
-One is that we are focused on receiving as much as on giving and we need to learn to give with a cheerful heart without expecting something in return.
-Two is that the return blessing or reaping doesn’t always come in the same way that we gave it, but may come in a way we don’t expect such as God sparing us from a car accident or from some disease.
-Three is that it may not come at a time when we’re looking for it, but when God feels it’s best to give it to us. That is why He says in verse 9 that we shouldn’t give up because in due season we WILL reap.
It may take a while to realize it, but we do reap what we sow.
So smile, because God loves you!
