You Reap What You Sow

35. You Reap What You Sow

In 2nd Corinthians 9:6, it says: The one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.

The grandchild story that illustrates that for me is when Zack and I were driving along a strip mall. We had already shopped but he saw a store where he wanted something and asked if we could stop and I said, “No—we’ve done our stopping, and now we’re heading home.” He looked at me and said in an angry seven year-old voice, “I hate you.” I looked at him and smiled and said, “You know, I would never ever say that to you.” He looked at me, thought for a minute, softened and said, “You’re right—you never would—I take it back.”

I sowed something there that worked.

Try out this song—it’s the same message and you sing it to the folk tune “She’ll Be Comin’ Round the Mountain When She Comes.”

Plant tomatoes and you harvest some tomatoes,

Plant tomatoes and you harvest some tomatoes,

Plant some anger or a smile, Plant some good deeds all the while,

And at harvest time, just see what you will reap.

Plant zucchini, harvest lots of good zucchini,

Plant zucchini, harvest lots of good zucchini,

Plant some bad words in your living, Plant some taking and some giving,

And at harvest time, just see what you will reap.

—–

Plant sunflowers, harvest lots of tall sunflowers,

Plant sunflowers, harvest lots of tall sunflowers,

If you plant some fighting ways, If you plant some peaceful days,

Then at harvest time, just see what you will reap.
