Hopefully they’re fair and equal; considerate and caring; respectful and honest.
When true they will never wear out and always persevere in the end.
Something you can exemplify, hold onto forever, sleep with at night, and wake up and still have in the morning.
You can even pass them on for generations to come through songs, stories, books, words…. …in subtle or drastic ways.
They give you purpose and motivation. If chosen correctly they can be virtuous and immortal, casting a legacy that may never be forgotten as long as anyone shall live.
It’s who you are because you’ve truly thought about what they mean to you and considered how they will affect others around you.
The true definition of it all, the life you live:
I am a very spiritual person and do not currently follow any organized religion, but I grew up reading the Bible. When I was writing this and wanted to be sure I was not directly quoting someone by using the title: Reap What You Sow, I came across the Bible verse that refers to this phrase, and I wanted to share it. I really like to use my philosophical, critical thinking skills when trying to understand the message.
Galatians 6:7-8: “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.” (http://www.prca.org/sermons/galatians6.7-8.html)
