EVERY DEED A SEED

EVERY DEED A SEED

The year is winding up. People are in a hurry. Deadlines need to be met. Money needs to be made to take care of the demands of the festive season – children need new clothes and shoes to show off to their friends, variety of meals and goodies need to be made available, so everyone is running against time. Yesterday as i drove home from work, i felt the impatience in the air. People drove along slowly moving traffic as if they were making to ram into vehicles ahead of them just to get along.

In the midst of all these are multitudes of people waiting, hoping, praying, that their desires for the year will still be met. Some people are going through their goals for the year as well as their resolutions to see if they could right their wrongs in order to have their requests granted all before the year ends. Some who have spent the year gathering wealth by defrauding people or by dishonest means are poised to give to charity, so that God’s mercy can be shown to them.

At this time of the year also, people, in the spirit of the season, visit the motherless, destitute, sick, etc and give gifts believing that their acts of kindness and charity will open doors for them in the new year. It’s amazing how people consciously do good, believing it will be rewarded and don’t also believe that evil deeds will also be rewarded, and never consciously avoid doing bad. Have you noticed that when the bible said we should give and it shall be given unto us, good measure shaken together, and running over”, he was not particularly talking about material things?, he says he will cause men to give to our bosom. That principle was all about sowing and reaping.

The universe is ruled by principles. There are laws that are universal. A fundamental one is the law of cause and effect or the law of sowing and reaping. We are very quick in assuring ourselves of hundredfold increases to our every good deed but refuse to accept that the same principle applies for bad. Everything we do, whether good or bad is an action, and Newton’s 3rd law states that: “For every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction”. Every of our action attracts a reaction. Every seed never grows to produce a seed. It produces hundreds of its kind. So, let’s never view any of our actions at face value because there’s always a ripple effect.

Let’s decide on a consistent, quality and godly lifestyle; let’s set ourselves and generations after us up for God’s favour and transgenerational blessings. We need to be very careful what deed we sow and secure our future by our lives today; because indeed, every deed is a seed.

Have a splendid weekend and holiday!}

    Na so o mummy Ire baby. As Tuface said —- nobody wan die but dem wan go heaven lol.
    That principle of doing bad and dousing it with some good is too common in Nigeria and I think it is greatly fueled by some blind spiritual leaders. The bible is so clear about it but some people still don’t understand that works is not enough to get to heaven. Some other religions actually believe that works and the good deeds a man does will be weighed against his bad deeds on the day of judgment. This ensures that some people steal so much as government officials or 419 and erroneously think they can wash themselves clean by donating some money to building a new religious sanctuary or giving some percentage of it to charity. What about those who die daily in our hospitals and roads because some corrupt officials diverted money meant to fund those areas? What about the pains that come to all of us collectively? It will be interesting to see how people will be charged for murder on judgment day and they will be surprised as they though they never carried guns. Thanks for this post ….. he who has hears let him hear what the spirit is saying. It is time to consciously alter the stereotypes and live a very productive and godly 2009. Merry Xmas in arrears.

    Good food for my thoughts!

    My father’s best verse of the bible is Galatians 6:7. It says:

    “Be not deceived God is not mocked, whatsoever a man sows, that he would also reap”

    May God have mercy on us all

    Well spoken!

    Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as you can for you shall surely, in one way or the other, reap the reward. What goes round, comes round and the harvest no matter how long it takes to mature, far exceeds the seeds sown.

    Bless you!
