Sowing and Reaping

A friend who, for years, had a lowly job has now come into a better financial position. She told us of an incident that happened years ago whereby she was treated in a rather dismissive way by a real estate agent at a social event. Her husband also had a story to tell of how he was snubbed by a financial planner at a social event, because the planner wanted to "work the room."

This husband and wife, as I said, are now in an enviable position of requiring the assistance of a real estate agent and financial planner, both of whom stand to reap substantial commissions in an economy where it would be most welcome.

Guess who they're not going to call?

The seeds were sown long ago. The agent and planner will reap an empty harvest, because they were more interested in money than relationships.

People will not remember what you say. They will not remember what you do. But they will never forget how you made them feel.

Don't forget to be kind. Some have entertained angels unaware. (Hebrews 13:2)

Where will you sow your seeds of kindness today?
