Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. - Galatians 6:7

There is a spiritual law that is in place that effects everyone regardless if they follow Christ or not. Its called reaping and sowing. Every day we are all just like farmers working in the fields as we plow the soil and prepare it for seeding in hopes of a great harvest. Yes, its true whatever you do each day good or bad is sowing seeds and one day you will reap a harvest whether you want to or not. It's how God designed this world with a sense of order even if we choose to go against it. We have been given freedom but there are consequences for those choices. So we must be mindful of how we conduct our selves and our daily affairs. Gods law has been set in place and you can not get around it no matter how hard you try. This may seem very harsh to some but its actually done out of a heart of great love for us. Tough love in some cases. It challenges us to treat others as we would want to be treated. You might say that there are some people who don't deserve to be treated properly and have done nothing good at all to merit it. In the bigger picture unfortunately none of us have according to Gods decrees . But the great news is when we place our trust in him and his work of regeneration and salvation we get a bountiful harvest we did not earn or deserve because he loves us so much. So as you live out your daily life be aware of how you treat others and know you are not labouring alone or in vain. But you are working with the creator of everything who wants everyone to know and understand how much you are loved and valued regardless of your circumstances. We can have that and more if we are willing to trust him and his master plan. But remember that all things happen according to his timing. So hang in there when times get tough and it seems he is no where to be found. For in reality he is closer than you think.
