If a farmer desires to reap a harvest of wheat , he sows wheat ; if he wants rice , he sows rice . what should we think of him if planted wheat and expected to harvest rice ; or the other way round ? The law of nature tells us that we must sow what we wish to reap . if we sow nothing , we shall reap nothing .

So it is with life . We have always to bear the consequences of our actions . If we perform good deeds , we shall be rewarded with good . If we perform bad deeds , we shall never enjoy peace of mind . Our lives will be wretched and miserable . We cannot achieve fair ends by using foul means . Even if we do , it will be short – lived .

Man can decide his own future by his present deeds . If he sows the seeds of vice , corruption and sin , he reaps the harvest of misery and ruin . If he plants virtue , purity and goodness , he plucks the golden fruit of success and happiness . If we want to achieve good , we should do good , for as we sow , shall we reap .
