The return we reap from generous actions is not always evident. – Francesco Guicciardini
The law of reaping and sowing falls into the category of “obvious but not quantifiable”.
Like a lot of the mysteries of life, it makes sense at a high level – we reap what we sow, but the amounts and timing don’t always seem so obvious.
The return for our investment of sowing generosity is not always self-evident or immediate.
The return is sometimes so mysterious that it creates doubt about the underlying truth. We can lose faith in the simple truth – we reap what we sow.
Time and time again it proves to be true.
What we spend our time and efforts on today will determine the future we experience.
I’m sure you are all smart enough to know this, I’m merely hoping to remind you.
Sow what? (See what I did there?)
Sow positivity instead of negativity.
Sow love instead of hate.
Sow forgiveness instead of bitterness.
Sow generously instead of miserly.
Sow virtue instead of vice.
Sow faith instead of doubt.
Sow exercise instead of cake.
Sow saving instead of spending.
Make it a great day.
