The Impact of a Grateful Heart:

Sowing and reaping; the fruits of an ungrateful heart.

This is what is called the “law of the harvest”: what we sow grows and becomes the fruit we reap in our lives. Paul stated this godly principle in Galatians 6:7: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.” Jesus, likewise, spoke along these lines in Matthew 7:16-18 when He warned, “By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.”

There are consequences, both good and bad, depending on who we are and what we do. A good tree will bear good fruit and a bad tree will bear bad fruit. You can see this in Romans 1:21 vividly, “For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.”

Look at cause and effect, there were those who did not glorify God as God and were not thankful to Him. That’s the cause… The effect of this cause is that they “became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

Speaking of “bad fruit,” wow! An ungrateful heart leads to futile thoughts, it prevents you from reasoning according to reality. It also envelops your heart in darkness, leading you to value things of no worth and to devalue life’s treasures, considering important and meaningful things as granted. In short, sowing a grateful heart in our actions brings us a harvest of hope and happiness in the Lord, towards whom and for whom we are grateful.
