We Reap What We Sow

The proverb that we reap what we sow is real.

It can work for us or against, based on what we sow, but it is at work.

I can testify to all kinds of examples of the principle at play in my own life, and the lives of others;

but today I want to spotlight one way in which the maxim applies in my own life for which I am exceedingly grateful.

After sowing for as long as I’ve been sowing at our mission, I am blessed to have many walking, talking, achieving products that prove what we do.

I enrolled some new members a couple days ago and asked the question that I ask in every information meeting first, “have you been able to see how my program will develop those benefits in yourself and your child?”

Josh replied in a way that was the thought impetus that led to this meditation.

he said, “oh, we know Gabby and Ben (two of my young blackbelts); they are more than sufficient evidence of the benefits of your program. They are walking testimonials to what you do”.

I feel edified reliving it as I tell you what he told me.

I am grateful to him for sharing and I KNOW that he and his son Jacob are going to be amazing Blackbelts in the future too!

And of course I am grateful to Gabby and Ben and all the other amazing Blackbelt leaders walking the walk and talking the talk.

And I am grateful that we reap what we sow.
