Daily Word

from New International Version (NIV)
Sure Reward

Proverbs 11:18

The wicked man earns deceptive wages, but he who sows righteousness reaps a sure reward.

A sower goes about to sow the Word. Some of the Word falls by the way side, some falls on hard rocky ground, some falls among thorns, and some seed falls into good soil (see Mark 4). How do you know what is good soil? How will you reap your sure reward?

Hosea 10:12 describes how we should sow ourselves righteousness to reap unfailing love and break up our unplowed ground.

Seeking the Lord, praying and reading His Word will cause our ground to be broken up. We will begin to remove the rocky ground and thorns which blocks our harvest. The good thing about God is He is ready and willing to help us. He knows we will fail along the way but He is there to dust us off and get us going on the right track again.

Sow the Word into your life today to make your life a good ground for seed sown.
