#4300 – Sowing & Reaping

Good morning people who understand the laws that affect us all

Genesis 3:16-19 NIV 16 To the woman he said, I will make your pains in childbearing very severe; with painful labor you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.” 17 To Adam he said, Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, You must not eat from it,Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life. 18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field. 19 By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.”

God can forgive anything, and He loves to when we call out to Him.

But there are still consequences to our decisions.

Unfortunately many people either don’t ask God to forgive them today, or they ask Him and then get upset when they still have to live with consequences.

King David repented, yet he son still died because of his disobedience.

The Bible is very clear on the law of sowing and reaping.

I want to state it again: God forgives us when we ask Him – fully, completely without any need to add to it by works. For some of you today, this is what you need to focus on and act on.

But even when we are forgiven, consequences still may happen. This is not a sign that God hasn’t forgiven us. It is a sign that we made a wrong choice.

Let’s not blame God for the consequences of our poor decisions.

Rather, let’s ask Him to help us walk through the consequences with His grace and strength.
