Sowing and Reaping with God
As parents, my wife and I are conscious of teaching our children things that will hold them in good stead throughout their lives. Our role is to shape their character and one of the ways we do this is to teach them about consequences.
We see the result of consequences all around us. There are countless opportunities to demonstrate that God has put in place laws such as sowing and reaping that are common to all those in His creation. We see it watching the nightly news, we hear about it in the school yard dramas, we witness during their sporting activities.
There is a consequence to each of your actions, for good or for bad. You choose your consequence by choosing your actions.
In Psalm 34 King David acts as our teacher, teaching us the ways of the Lord. As we sow according to the ways of God, He shows us there is also something good we will reap!
Psalm 34:1-2 says
“I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul makes its boast in the Lord; let the humble hear and be glad.”
