Reaping Follows Sowing

"Good understanding giveth favor; but the way of transgressors is hard" (Proverbs 13:15)

We may sow to the flesh if we will. There will be no interference from above. Thus to sow is our privilege - if we want to reap the harvest of corruption which must inevitably follow, a harvest no man in his right mind could deliberately choose.

No, the snare lies in choosing the pleasures of sowing with the secret hope that in some way we can escape the sorrows of the reaping; but never since the beginning of the world has it been possible to separate the one from the other.

The way to deal with a law of God is to work along with it. By faith and obedience we can put every divine law to work for us. And the law of sowing and reaping may be brought to our service and made to toil for our everlasting good.

So kind is God and so thoughtful of His creatures.

Disobedience always leads to danger. The way of wrong is the way of peril; the way of transgressors is hard. God has said so, and you can never make it otherwise.

~A. W. Tozer~
