Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. (Galatians 6:7, NLT)
Yahweh is a just and righteous God. He has set His heart and mind to bless those who sow righteousness. The opposite is true for He will remove His blessings on those who plant seeds of corruption. Being a just and righteous God, He allowed men to decide for themselves how they ought to sow—choosing between the seed of righteousness and corruption.
Scripture made it very clear that “Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit. So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time, we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith.” (Galatians 6:8-10, NLT)

Here are at least two levels of application in terms of planting. The first is a personal level when we are to live a God-centered lifestyle. When we run after God, we will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit. To name a few benefits of everlasting life, such as having God’s grace to bear fruits of the Spirit; experiencing God’s divine favour during good and bad times; enjoying salvation in this lifetime and beyond, etc.
While the second level of application has got to do with sowing into the lives of God’s people, starting from your immediate family, following with your local church and beyond.
How do we sow into these lives around us? Practically, we could always begin with the ability which God has graced us in. Let me tell you a story which best describes my thoughts.
As a spiritual mentor, I maximise God’s gift in my life to encourage, exalt and to point to the ideal direction for various individuals. Depending on who and what season they are at, I’ll also seek God and pray for them to receive convictions in the Spirit. Due to time constraints, I place my church friends on top of my schedule.
I also have a mentor that coaches me in other aspects. As I sat with my mentor, I received knowledge and understanding which God has graced him. In this sense, I harvest the enormous amount of blessings — knowledge and wisdom.
I’m growing as well as my church friends. We are harvesting from one another simply because we sow into each other. Perhaps you could do likewise and enjoy the harvest which is coming soon.
Scripture reading: Galatians 6
Dear God, thank you for being just and righteous. You promised to bless me with a good amount of harvest when I sow seeds of righteousness and kindness. You have been faithful in this space ever since I obeyed Yours called. May Your grace continue to be upon me, and I’ll keep sowing into these lives around me. Teach me to be a good planter and help me to stay diligent. As I sow into these lives, I desire that Your glory fill the earth. So that Your name is glorified. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen!
