Vitamins for Spiritual Health (4)

“Are you in health, my brother?” 2Sa 20:9 NKJV

Never forget the law of sowing and reaping. God set in motion certain laws and they

never change. One is the law of gravity. Another is the law of sowing and reaping.

“While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest…shall not cease” (Ge 8:22 NKJV). This law works both negatively and positively. If you sow good things you will reap good things; if you sow bad things you will reap bad things. Consider parenting. Eli the high priest was

not only called to be a role model to the nation, but also to his two sons. Now, he may

have been a great success in ministry but he failed badly on the home front. His sons, who

were also priests, enriched themselves by taking bribes. They even slept with women in

the temple courts. Pretty shocking, eh? So what did God say? “I will judge his house…for

the iniquity which he knows, because his sons made themselves vile, and he did not

restrain them” (1Sa 3:13 NKJV). As a result Eli’s sons were killed at the hands of their

enemies, and when the news of it reached Eli he dropped dead. That’s the harvest law

working negatively. But thank God it also works positively. Paul writes about it: “Knowing

that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord” (Eph 6:7 NKJV).

You say, “What does that mean?” It means that whatever good you make happen for

others, God will make happen for you. So whether it’s a smile, a prayer, a gift or a helping

hand, start sowing good seeds and you will reap harvests of blessing.
