To be able to reap, we need to plant seed. That seed has to come to harvest for us to reap. The following are the definitions of sow, reap, harvest. Understanding the meaning of these words will help in understanding what is means to reap what you sow. Without a harvest, after you sow, there is nothing to reap.
Sow-to scatter [seed] over the ground for growing-to impregnate [a growing medium] with seed-to propagate: disseminate-to strew or cover with something
Propagate-to cause to multiply
disseminate-to scatter widely- to spread abroad-to become spread out
Reap -to cut [a grain or pulse]- or harvest with a scythe, sickle, or reaper-to harvest [a crop]-to harvest a crop from-to obtain as a result of effort-to obtain as a result of effort-to obtain a return or reward
Harvest-the act or process of gathering a crop-the crop that ripens or is gathered in a season-the amount or measure of the crop gathered in one season-the time or season of such gathering-the consequence or result of an action
God gives us seed and tells us where to sow it. God does not sow for us or make us sow. We don’t have to make our seed grow, God does that. He is the one that grows the harvest, then we are to reap.
