Planting the Seeds

I was reminded of that lesson while reading last night.  I  remembered the habits of my father. As a young man then, he would ask for seeds from the fruits we eat. Then he would keep and  plant them in our yard. Fast-forward to many years, the trees have grown multiplying its produce  a hundred times. That’s the Law  of the Harvest. Whatever we  plant, we harvest. 

Planting mangoes will give us mangoes.  But.... if we refuse to plant anything will result to nothing. The same is true with our actions. Planting  goodness will result to goodness. Maybe  not today    but some time  in the future. On the contrary  if we choose to plant  unfairness, deceit, cruelty, hatred etc.  will likely to  result to unfavorable harvest. 

How about reaping lasting joy? I like this thought shared  by Bo Sanchez: “The happiest people in the world are those who’ve planted  the most seeds of happiness into others.” And this is perhaps the secret of the truly happy people - Always making the effort of planting and cultivating the seeds of happiness into the lives of others.

Whoever brings blessing will be enriched,

    and one who waters will himself be watered. ~Proverbs 11:25

ito ang hirap sa mga tao .. madalas eh makasarili, ang gusto nila yung makakabuti lang sa kanila wala ng iba kundi sila lang.

Amen to that sir Ric :))

Kung ano man ang ibinigay or ginawa mo sa iyong kapwa ay siya ring babalik sayo. Parang rule of karma din yan :)

Always smile, be happy!

Great reminder. Everyone should be doing positive actions so as to merit positive results. While even doing positive things, there will also be people who will throw you criticism and hatred. Still, continue to be good.
