Sow and Reap

Life is all about striving to achieve your desires and goals 

In order to move forward

You must be ready/prepared to face challenges

Even if one had been destined for great things

They can’t achieve great status by sitting back

You have to struggle before your destiny comes to pass

Some opportunities were helpful

Only to those who were well prepared

How can a person who doesn’t attend school

Be employed and given a position that requires a graduate.

How can a person who doesn’t learn a trade

That is required in a certain establishment or place

Be able to provide a service that would earn him income 

How can a farmer who doesn’t sow a crop during the planting season

Expects a bountiful harvest 

How can a student who doesn’t read

Expects to be a useful graduate after their education

How can a disobedient wife

Expects her husband to be loving and caring

How can a young person who doesn’t respect elders

Expects younger ones to respect him

How can someone who lives in dirty surroundings 

Expects to have a sound health

Good brings good

Evils bring evils

Righteous deeds bring eternal joy

Ill deeds cause discomfort
