Are you discouraged because you work so hard and yet see few or no result? God’s Word assures: “Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy” (Psalm 126:5). Not every sowing guarantees a joyful harvest, but sowing “in tears.” And it’s not sowing once, but persistently: “He who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him” (v. 6). Keep sowing-—in sunshine and darkness, in sacrifice and pain, in sickness and grief, in patience and kindness. Sow amidst opposition and persecution. “Sow in tears”—-in tears of sympathy with the hurting, tears of disappointment and regret, tears of sorrow for sin, and tears of brokenness under conviction from God’s Word. Don’t give up. Sow in tears and you’ll reap in joy.–Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
