Sow justice - reap justice. Sow mercy - reap mercy.

37"Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. 38Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." - Luke 6:37-38
The principle of sowing and reaping is always at work:
  • When you don’t judge others for their junk, you will receive good measure (loads) of mercy.
  • When you don’t condemn others for the things they have done against you, then you will not be condemned.
  • When you forgive others (even forgive them for the extremely hurtful, horrible, sick stuff), then you will be given complete forgiveness – overflowing.
  • When you give out this mercy, it will be given to you in such large amounts that it will be running all over you and this will make you happy in God. AMEN!
Notice the context of this passage. It isn't talking about financial sowing and reaping. Jesus isn't talking about receiving amazing gains in the area of money and finances. Rather, He is talking about reaping amazing gains in the area of mercy, grace, and forgiveness. That blows away financial blessings any day of the week.
