There are days when I find myself asking “Why?”
Why must people hurt others with deception and lies?
What makes a person do such a thing?
Knowing how much heartbreak and pain it can bring.
What is it we are not sure of when the Bible tells us this?
God is not mocked in that he cannot be deceived.
For whatever a man sows, he shall also reap. (Gal 6:7)
We may fool ourselves when we hit or miss.
And for our actions, think we will not be punished.
Regardless what we may think, we cannot fool God.
He will not ignore what we have done.
We are not exempt when we impose our foolish will.
There will be a consequence.
Our behavior will not go without punishment.
Remember God is all knowing.
Nothing can be hidden from his sight.
He sees and knows all our wrongs and rights.
Ask yourself this.
What kind of seed are you sowing that you may be blessed?
Are you planting seeds to please God that you may reap?
Blessings of God’s joy, love and peace?
Are you planting right to receive a harvest in the afterlife?
An eternal reward; God’s gift of everlasting life.
Or are you planting seeds to please your own desires?
By doing the exact opposite of what God desires you to do?
To only reap what you planted; the seed sown by you.
“For as he thinketh in his heart so is he…” (Proverbs 23:7)
It is the things he will do as his thoughts cause him to be.
In the end, we all must give an account to God for what we’ve done.
We will account for our conduct in this world, whether right or wrong.
“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad” (2 Co 5:10)
Let the Word of God be your conscious and your guide.
Plant the right seed that you may reap good fruit in the tree of life.
Live to please God. Sow good seed.
Plant acts of kindness and good deed.
So that your efforts are rewarded as you prosper and grow.
Fruit of the Spirit can be an example you follow
To determine what kind of seed you are to sow.
These are the attributes of a true Christian life.
And are the fruits that we are to produce in our life with Jesus Christ.
What seed are you sowing?
Be blessed! -JD
Galatians 5:22-23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control. Against such things there is no law.”
