You Reap What You Sow,You Get Back What You Put In
Galatians tells us that you reap what you sow, and that makes sense. It is roughly equivalent to a Judeo-Christian version of karma. That said, having grown up on a farm I know you also often sow what you reap. In other words, it is easy to get into a circular pattern.
What do you do to break the cycle?
For rulers are not a cause of fear to good conduct, but to evil. Do you wish to have no fear of authority? Then do what is good and you will receive approval from it, for it is a servant ofGod for your good. But if you do evil, be afraid, for it does not bear the sword without purpose; it is the servant of God to inflict wrath on the evildoer.
As the dog returns to his vomit, so the fool repeats his folly.
Step off the merry-go-round and mix it up. Complacency is a faith-killer. Every year, make a list of what you intend to do that year. Challenge yourself to go outside of your boundaries of comfort and embrace vulnerability. That’s not what I always do, but it is what I want to do.You Reap What You Sow.
He prayeth best, who loveth best
All things both great and small;
For the dear God who loveth us,
He made and loveth all.
You reap what you sow then God will return that reaping ten fold.

4. KARMA – The total effect of a person’s actions and conduct during the successive phases of the person’s existence, regarded as determining the person’s destiny, especially, in his next incarnation.
5. What goes around comes around.
6. Your actions all have consequences. Don’t ever be fooled into thinking that your actions don’t have consequences. Don’t think you can get away with bad choices even if you don’t seem to get caught. Remember verse seven tells us that God cannot be mocked. He sees it all. You reap what you sow.
Watch the way you live your life because you reap what you sow.
We sow in one season, we reap in another.
Sow a thought you reap an act. Sow an act, you reap a habit. Sow a habit, you reap a character. Sow a character, you reap a consequence.

8: For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
9: And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
