The Five Laws of Sowing and Reaping :
Important Principles to Guide Life
1. Sowing is a Choice. The farmer chooses his crop. It is intentional and the farmer expects to reap from his efforts. 2. The farmer knows his crop. Sowing is an investment, so the farmer is careful. He is equipped to sow and reap in accordance with the nature of his crop. He has the land, has the right equipment, understands the calendar, knows the cultivation schedule, and knows the water and nutrients necessary for the crop to yield its intended result. If he is careless, if his stewardship falters, he stands to lose everything. 3. You reap what you sow. Simple enough, you won’t get bananas if you plant wheat, no matter how hard you wish for them. 4. You reap much more than you sow. One single seed yields hundreds to thousands of its kind. 5. You reap in a different season than you sow. Millet crops in Butaleja are sown in January or February for harvest in June. Plants don’t germinate overnight and consequences are often delayed. From the early days of creation, God set laws in effect that govern life on earth, regulating our choices and actions. It is called CAUSE and EFFECT. There are consequences to everything; a sovereign God has declared it to be so. In our youth we tend to make choices without considering the consequences. Sometimes this sets a life-long pattern and we live our lives as if there are no consequences. The deception is in thinking that there are no consequences when, in fact, they are just delayed. It is not until our later years that the truths inherent in laws 3-5 come home to roost and we discover just how true they are. Carelessness with decisions abounds in our culture today with little thought of the future. Today is all that matters. We are all paying a price for this disregard; God will not be mocked. These laws grant us insight into the future by enabling us to consider what kind of consequences we can expect from our actions. It is then a matter of faith to believe God for what He has promised. How many of us are willing to wait on God for His timing and His provision?

The LORD said “Them that honour me I will honour. Be . should walk before me for ever: but now the LORD saith. would all do well to ask ourselves this most basic question as we stand at the door of decision: “Do I want God’s blessing?” Our choices often tell the world how much of God we really want in our lives. or lands. and in the Word of God. for MY NAME’S SAKE. and shall inherit everlasting life. The choice is ours. The bad news is that we will surely reap corruption if we sow to the flesh (if we want our own way). you might say that the universal law of giving and receiving would mean that you could give to anywhere and receive a return. or wife. This hope is found in Galatians 6:8 and in law 1. what is the reason why some people prosper more than others? The answer is one word: Sowing The real secret is this.

Matthew 19:29 Jesus said “Every one that hath forsaken houses. the believers in Christ. God has not hidden it from us.” Whatever you give for the sake of Jesus. He has revealed it. It is seen in nature. It is because you are helping further the work of the Lord God in this world. Understanding the Law of Sowing and Reaping Other than having wealth consciousness. it is not just sowing anywhere. We have a choice. I said indeed that thy house. These laws should sober us and at the same time give those who choose righteousness great cause for rejoicing. or brethren.

If you practice God’s Law of Sowing and Reaping by sowing and expecting to reap a harvest. then give an offering beyond that and see what happens.” There are TWO Criteria to determine the PLACE or the PERSON you sow into. and prove me now herewith. . give beyond the tithe as an offering. meaning you would have an inner feeling of “wanting to” sow to this place or this person.

Give a tenth of your income this month to a spiritual cause with a consciousness of receiving much more. You must sow and you must mentally reap.Page 3 of 4 it far from me. The tithe is one tenth of all your increase. Give one tenth of your income as the tithe. 3. and he who sows bountifully shall reap also bountifully. joy. then sow into that abundance and you will receive from that same abundance that place or person is having. 2 Corinthians 9:6 “He who sows sparingly shall reap also sparingly. etc. and pour you out a blessing.” If you have been giving your tithe. and see what happens. saith the LORD of hosts. Good ground is a place that vibrates positive energies of love. for them that honour me I will honour. that there shall not be room enough to receive it. that there may be meat in mine house.

Give especially to places and people that are Good Ground where the fruits of abundance and greater good are showing. The second criterion is external: You must sow into GOOD GROUND.

Sowing and Reaping is the reason why many people prosper greatly in this world. 20 percent would be a good figure. Why is it good to sow more than 10 percent of your income?
