"What You Do Comes Back To You."

. . . or . ..

"You Reap What You Sow."

By Rev. Bill McGinnis, Director - Internet Church Of Christ - LoveAllPeople.org

The words "What you do comes back to you" are an excellent paraphrase of the Biblical truth, "You reap what you sow." You plant the seeds (sow), and then later you gather the resulting harvest (reap). The harvest that you reap depends on the kind of seeds you sow. If you sow corn, you will not reap olives.



                       "YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW."

             "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a
              man soweth, that shall he also reap." (Galatians 6:7 KJV)


  
Whatever you give out to others, God will eventually give back to you. This is the basic nature of God's Justice: "YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW."

      "According to their way I will do to them, and according to
       their own judgments I will judge them; and they shall know
       that I am the LORD." (Ezekiel 7:27b RSV)

This is the spiritual reality behind the Golden Rule.

              
                          The Golden Rule


            "TREAT OTHERS AS YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE TREATED."
          
   
           "Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men
            should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is
            the law and the prophets." (Matthew 7:12 KJV)




This is not so that others, themselves, will "do unto you" what you have done unto them. It is because God, Himself, will "do unto you" what you have done unto others!

There are many other examples of this principle in Scripture.


               -------------------------------------------------
              "Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not,
               and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall
               be forgiven:
            
              "Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure,
               pressed down, and shaken together, and running over,
               shall men give into your bosom. For with the same
               measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to
               you again."

                                     Luke 6:37-38 (KJV)
               ----------------------------------------------------

              "Judge not, that ye be not judged." (Matthew 7:1 KJV)

              "For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the
               whirlwind:" (Hosea 8:7a KJV)

              " . . . He which soweth sparingly shall reap also
               sparingly; and he which soweth bountifiully shall
               reap also bountifully." (2 Corinthians 9:6 KJV)                 

              " . . they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness,
               reap the same." (Job 4:8 KJV)

              "He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he
               that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword."
               (Revelation 13:10a,b KJV)
 
              "Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his
               place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with
               the sword." (Matthew 26:52 KJV)

              "Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow
               wickedness, reap the same." (Job 4:8 KJV)

              "Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break 
               up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD,
               till he come and rain righteousness upon you."
               (Hosea 10:12 KJV)


              ------------------------------------------------------
             "For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father
              will also forgive you:

             "But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will
              your Father forgive your trespasses."

                              Matthew 5:14-15 (KJV)
              -------------------------------------------------------
          

Therefore, Beloved, forgive others and be forgiven by God; love others and be loved by God; give mercy to others and receive mercy from God; fill the needs of others and have your needs filled by God.

It's a simple concept, and totally just: "Whatever you do to others, God will eventually do to you. You reap what you sow."


          "and I will give unto every one of you according
           to your works." (Revelation 2:23c KJV)
