Tensions Part 3: Sowing and Reaping


Over the last several weeks, seeds of doubt have been scattered across the country about Brett Kavanaugh and his right to judge in the Supreme Court. Many people - led by the manipulative efforts of left-wing Democrats - have already cast their aspersions and found the man guilty of crimes he has staunchly denied. Supporters of the #MeToo movement have blasted their anger against this man they perceive as a gang rapist and given unwavering compassion and loyalty to women whose testimonies are littered with inconsistencies. The due process of our American justice system has been turned upside down and whether or not Judge Kavanaugh is innocent doesn't really matter any more. The seeds have already been sown and our system is now left to reap a harvest of corruption.


What we sow and how much of it we sow matters. The Democrats understand this principle. While I do not care to admit, they are walking in alignment with 2 Corinthians 9:6 which states, "Remember this - a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop." We have to spread our seeds in plenty if we hope to reap in plenty. A farmer would never make a profit if he/she only scattered minimally. This Scripture mostly pertains to giving of money and belongings, but the same can be said of philosophies and ideas.

The balance of sowing and reaping or giving and receiving cannot be overstated. Living in one state without the other will only produce a life out of order. Only giving and expecting nothing in return will result in a deficit, whether in the bank account or in our spiritual lives. Living in a state of only receiving will produce a mindset of selfishness and narcissism, quoting childish phrases like "Mine, mine, mine," from Finding Nemo. So, we understand that we have to have enough foresight to see the process through to the end. Sow, wait, and then eventually reap.


Though I am not trying to make a political statement, I believe the Kavanaugh hearings are a prime example of this principle. Wealthy liberals are hoping they've invested enough doubt in the minds of the American people to reap a harvest of power come election day in November. Please understand that no matter what these Senators pontificate in these hearings, their end goal is control. If sowing in peace reaps a harvest of righteousness according to James 3:18, surely the act of sowing in chaos will reap a harvest of wickedness - and if these Senators' lives were as harshly inspected as Kavanaugh's, I am absolutely certain that is what we would find.


Philosophies and ideas can spread like wildfire if there is enough support to get it moving in the right direction. The unquestioning mind that thoughtlessly regurgitates anything coming across a news feed is fertile soil for deceptive ideas. Once taken to heart, those ideas are then liked and shared to other unquestioning minds that repeat the cycle. Thus, the seeds are sown and they begin to grow roots. Facebook and Twitter are like sun and water helping the newly formed verdure of ideals to grow into a lush crop that is widely accepted and consumed in droves.


These men and women who are craving power know this principle well and will never stop until they see their intended end.


I did not vote for any Senator on the judiciary committee, but I must give credit to where credit is due. They are organized in their strategy and the execution of said strategy. And if a miracle does not happen soon, we have not only participated in ruining a man's life and reputation, but we have finally hammered a last nail in the coffin of an already deteriorating system.
