Posts Tagged ‘You reap what you sow’
“You reap what you sow” is a proverb that stipulates that
you eventually have to face up to the consequences of your actions.
In Galatians 6:7 we read, “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.”
To bring home the point, allow me to share a few thought provoking quotes.
“ It has been said that life is like an echo. What you send out, you get back; what you give, you receive; what you reap, you sow; what you see in others, exists in you.”
“Your mind is like a garden. Your thoughts are the seeds. You can grow flowers or you can grow weeds.”
“Your beliefs don’t make you a better person; your behavior does.”
“Karma is just a shorter word for consequences.”
“If you want kindness, be kind. If you want friends, be friendly. If you want love, be loving. If you want respect, respect yourself. You will get more by giving than asking.”
“You are free to choose, but you are not free from the consequences of your choices.”
“Don’t be upset by the results you didn’t get with the work you didn’t do.”
“Your thoughts become your words; your words become your actions; your actions become your habits; your habits become your character; and your character becomes your destiny.”
Therefore, be careful with what you do or say. Not only that! What could you do that you don’t? Retaliation, harassment, sneakiness, and underhanded conduct may be a part of your act. Watch it! What goes around comes around; what goes up comes down! God is watching and listening. He sees your heart and knows your thoughts. Nothing escapes his view or go unnoticed. What you do in the dark comes to light. Your actions are in God’s full view. Be wise. Make good choices. Eventually, you will receive back what you gave out. You will reap what you sow!
God bless! Happy Sunday!

Messy people; you know them! They are in our families, in our churches, at the job site, and amongst our colleagues, associates and friends! They angrily walk around like roaring lions stirring up “Tower of Babel” type of confusion. When they enter the picture, they become royal troublemakers. They incite people to disagree, argue, and fight because messy people are balls of confusion. They strike a match, set a fire, and walk away with their targets figuratively on fire. Stop! No worries to the victims. Messy folks either eventually get burned, set themselves on fire, or get knocked out with a Muhammad Ali Thriller in Manila punch from one of their countless adversaries. Bam! Funny thing, it never fails! The people that they hurt along the way get a chance to see Mr. or Mrs. Messy being used for target practice. Bulls’ eye! Reverse victimization is brutal, isn’t it? In fact, it’s a mess! It is such gratification when the victors, who were formerly victims, walk by and utter, Mr. Messy, “That’s what you get; what’s goes around, comes around!” They, however keep on stepping because they don’t want to get the germination of any of that mess on their hands!
