Getting What You Give

God's Word works.  He tells us that we reap what we sow.

If we sow kindness, we will reap kindness.

If we sow generosity, we will reap generosity.

If we sow joy and happiness, we will reap joy and happiness.

Don't sow seeds of discontentment, complaining, impatience, selfishness, etc.  These are not things you want to reap.  Jesus told us that if we love Him, we will keep His commands and they are not burdensome.  They are for our good and for all those around us.

Be not deceived; God is not mocked:
for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap.
