"While the years are swiftly passing,
As we watch them come and go,
Do we realize the maxim,
'We must reap what'er we sow'?
When the past comes up before us,
All our thoughts, our acts, our deeds,
Shall they glean for us fair roses,
Or a harvest bear of weeds?
Are we sowing seeds of blossom?
We shall reap, some day, somewhere,
Just what here we have been sowing,
Worthless weeds or roses fair.
All around us, whispering ever,
Hear the voice of nature speak,
Teaching all the selfsame lesson,
'As you sow so shall you reap.' " —Elizabeth B. Zachariasen.
"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not." Galatians 6:6-9.
"With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free." Ephesians 6:7-8.
"And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ." Colossians 3:23-24.
