He who wishes to secure the good of others, has already secured his own. Confucius




The Lord is saying: Keep walking and do not look back. I have given you all you need to recover all you have lost. If you walk on and do not react but plant seeds of love and peace then your harvest will be plenty. Do not react by going by emotions but do that which is necessary to sow good seeds where there have been tares and weeds.



He that observeth the wind shall not sow Ecclesiastes 11:4

Its hard to sow good seeds when emotions are running high and driving us in the opposite direction. Yet when we react negatively to a situation we normally make it worse. Hurt people hurt people. Out of pain and rejection comes more wounding and the pain goes on. But we have been given the power to change the situation around by overcoming evil with good. Those hurt people can become softened by love once again and where there was hurt and emptiness can blossom peace and love.

There is a time for sowing and a time for reaping. It may seem a like a lifetime waiting for the harvest but the law of sowing and reaping cannot be broken. There is the 'suddenly', when everything is turned round. A harvest of good for those who have sown good seeds and a harvest of trouble for those who have sown bad seeds.

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap,
if we faint not.Galatians 6:9

They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.Psalm 126:5

Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.Romans 12:21







Today, I will know the unadulterated joy of giving with no strings.
I acknowledge that sometimes I hope for praise or reciprocation when I give
and that that detracts from the joy of giving. Today, the giving will be my joy.
I know that I will sow what I reap,
but I will not sow for the purpose of reaping.
I will sow for the
joy of sowing.”
