Gal. 6:7 – As You Sow, So Shall You Reap

As you sow, so shall you reap!

“Whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap.” Gal. 6:7

This is nothing but the Law of Attraction, documented in one of the oldest scripts. Each and every religion, every leader and every successful person has advocated this Law, in some form or the other.

The evidence comes from the nature. If you plant tomato seeds, you are bound to get a tomato plant. Similarly, the thought seed that you plant, will yield the same results as thought in those thoughts. And this is even true for everything – your attitude, love and even health. When you are nice to others, they are nice to you. If you are rude to them, they move away from you. When you give your body the healthy food, it yields a disease free body and vice versa.

Raymond Holliwell, goes further and explains that the bad experience that we attract, although may not appear to be the seeds that we have sowed, they serve a greater purpose. They may be there to increase our awareness in that particular area. They may occur to strengthen our skills. Or they may just serve as showing us the contrast, so that we understand the value of the good that we receive.

Here is an extract from the book – Working with the Laws, by Raymond Holliwell –

Jesus included this Law as a supreme factor in His doctrine. “Give and it shall be given unto you: Judge not that ye be not judged. With what measure ye mete, it shall be  easured unto you.” And Paul said, “Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”

The Law that we reap what we sow is mathematically accurate. Each experience through which we pass operates ultimately for our good. If we attract the unpleasant, it is often because some dormant or neglected phase of our nature needs to be awakened and developed; also, we learn from the experience to create something better. Hence the degree of contentment and satisfaction attained in whatever sphere of life we may dwell is largely dependent upon our ability to use constructively the experiences of life; for, in every case, the Law of Attraction will only bring what may serve us in our upward development. To interpret this Law in a simple form, it should be stated that whatever we attract we require, and whatever we need is always good. This is a correct attitude to adopt, because all experience is for our good and we must be able to see it in that light.

The key message in this verse is that we are responsible for the life that we live and not the outside world.
