The Lesson of the Seed

   
The Lesson of the Seed is "You reap your harvest after you do the work." You dig the soil and water the seed (effort), wait a while (patience) and then you pick your beans. 
  
Effort + patience = results.

In a nutshell:

If we are honest with ourselves, we can list almost everything that's ever happened to us - and see how we helped create it. Don't worry about whether the laws of the universe are delivering for your neighbor. Watch the law of cause and effect at work in your own life - in your own relationships, your own successes and your own disappointments. You will have greater peace of mind.

Thanks for reading! :)

NAMASTE.

  2. I would hate to admit this but I am just as human as anyone will be. There have been times when I fail to see what I am blessed with. This has been a good reminder..

  3. this is very true -effort + patience = results and is sum up in the virtue called persistence. I always believe "That which we persist in doing becomes easier for us to do not because the nature of the things has changed but because our power to do has increased".

  6. This verse from the bible states best what law of sowing and reaping is..
    "Remember this--a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop. You must each make up your own mind as to how much you should give. Don't give reluctantly or in response to pressure. For God loves the person who gives cheerfully. And God will generously provide all you need and plenty left over to share with others. (2 Cor 9:6-8 NLT)"

  7. Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. - Gal 6: 7

    It is true that what we plant is what we reaps. Our country feels the same way as we continue to struggle against floods caused by illegal loggers. As for our personal life, it is best always to be good to people; we'll never know what happens in the future - that person may help us in the future when we needed it. Same goes to success, like you said effort + patience is important to gain success. I may have to add faith, faith in yourself and in God (that is how it goes for me.) God bless.

  10. LIFE may take us to anywhere
    but we have to open our eyes to see
    the road we travel on... If we have determination
    to get what we want, we can reach them.

  14. So true, it takes effort, patience, and a lot of perseverance in order to yield results. And of course, prayer.

    Thank you so much for a great reminder! I needed this today and I think I still will in the future, most especially when times become tough. :-)

    Take care and God bless! :-)

  19. The Lesson of the Seed is "You reap your harvest after you do the work." You dig the soil and water the seed (effort), wait a while (patience) and then you pick your beans. Sometimes this quote is easier said than done, that's why a lot of people who doesn't have the patience ended up with a wrong decision. Admittedly, I am impatient but sometimes God give us tests that will teach us a valuable lesson so we will learn to be patient. This saying is relative to working hard because in the end all our hardwork will pay off.

  24. Just like in Science, the law of cause and effect, what you work on in your life is what you enjoy. I'm also reminded of what the Bible says, "God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap."
