Sowing Seed
Think of everything you do as planting seed.  You go through life casting seed —and either expecting a harvest, or being surprised by the harvest.  Our culture uses other terms to describe this:
What comes around goes around

The idea is simple—you reap what you sow.  It however, is a Biblical principle that God set in motion the moment he created the world.  Genesis 1:11 (NKJV)  “Then God said, ‘Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth’ ; and it was so.”  Simply put—oranges have seeds.  Those seeds, if planted will grow oranges—not bananas.  Everything has the capacity to bear seed according to its kind.

At present EVERYONE is experiencing some degree of grace--common grace.  Grace is manifested in any and all things that are kind, loving, caring, beautiful, pleasant, enriching--all those kinds of things.

In eternity you experience limitless grace or no grace.  The choice is yours--but only prior to death!  I plead with all my readers---run to Jesus in 2020!  Receive his awesome grace.
