"…he who sows righteousness reaps a sure reward"
(Proverbs 11:18, NIV)
Did you know God's kingdom operates on a system of sowing and reaping? Have you heard the saying, "What goes around, comes around?" That's really a spiritual principle. What you sow, you will reap. But I love what it says in today's verse that when we sow righteousness, we'll reap a sure reward.
Sowing righteousness simply means doing the right thing in the sight of God. It's obeying the Word no matter what the circumstances may look like. It means showing kindness even when it's undeserved. It's walking in love and keeping the peace when you really want to say something different. When you sow righteousness, you'll reap a sure reward. That's because God Himself is going to pay you back. He is the One who will multiply you when you honor Him.
Today, keep doing the right thing even if the wrong thing is happening. Sow righteousness. Stay in faith; keep believing because He who promised is faithful. There's a sure reward in store for you!
