A friend of mine has already started some seeds in little pots (we have a very short growing season here in Washington state). She has baby tomato and pepper plants pushing up through the soil.
… for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. Galatians 6:7b ESV
And like all growers, she knows that tomato seeds will produce tomato plants. If she wants eggplant she will have to plant eggplant seeds. What you sow, you reap. You can’t plant corn seeds and hope for asparagus (well, you can, but you’ll be sadly disappointed).
That said, much of life is like that. If you want a particular thing, you have to “plant seeds” of the same kind.
If you want kindness in your marriage, be kind. If you want friendship, be friendly. If you want honesty, be honest.
Sow good seed into your marriage.
