Thought Of The Day - Clear Vision & Positive Seeds

"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. You will harvest what you plant. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting." Galatians 6:7-8 (King James Version)

"You cannot fool God, so don’t make a fool of yourself!  If you follow your selfish desires, you will harvest destruction, but if you follow the Spirit, you will harvest eternal life." Galatians 6:7-8 (Contemporary English Version).

We all find ourselves in difficult circumstances at times, searching for someone or something to blame. A few circumstances are not within our control or influence, but in most case we need to look honestly at our own motivations and habits that may have led to where we are. Realising that whatever we allow to take root within us (within our hearts, our mind or our habits) will grow and eventually fruit. The seeds we plant are capable of maturing as success or failure, good or evil, anxiety or peace.

Success lies in your daily routine. Planting positive seeds can include making the decision to be of service to someone each day, helping people without any expectation of acknowledgement or repayment. Identifying and taking steps to change your bad habits, taking responsibility and tackling potential and existing problems. Grow by challenging yourself to find positive things to be thankful for every day, "This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24(KJV) and getting to know God better through His Word and prayer.

Lord, 
Grant us clear vision of our own motives  and habits.
so we can identify seed within us that may potentially reap corruption.
Assist us to replace them through daily planting of positive seed,
that will guide our Spirit to everlasting life.
Amen.
