You ever notice how there’s a sort of rhythm to life? You plant seeds, and eventually, you reap what you’ve sown. It’s like this universal law of cause and effect. Paul states it as a universal law,
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.— Galatians 6:7 (NKJV)
It’s like a wake-up call, a reminder that our actions have consequences, just like every cause has an effect. But here’s what’s fascinating: this principle isn’t just a piece of advice—it’s a universal law. Just like the law of gravity, it’s a part of the fabric of life. Thinking actions don’t have consequences is delusion.
Think about it—when you plant a seed, you don’t expect a completely different kind of plant to spring forth.
It’s the same with our actions. We can’t sow negativity and expect positivity to magically appear. We can’t treat others poorly and anticipate kindness in return. It’s like expecting to drop a ball and have it fly upward—it goes against the laws of nature.
Plant Better Seeds
So, let’s take this lesson to heart. Our actions, our words, our choices—they’re like seeds we plant. And just as God designed the law of planting and harvesting, He also designed the law of cause and effect in our lives. It’s not about punishment; it’s about the natural outcome of our choices.
Instead of living in a state of delusion, let’s be intentional about the seeds we’re planting. Let’s choose kindness, love, and positivity, knowing that they’ll eventually grow and flourish. Just like we wouldn’t jump off a building and expect to float, let’s not be surprised when our actions lead to their rightful consequences. It’s not about fear; it’s about living in alignment with the laws that govern life—laws that remind us that our choices matter and that our actions, like seeds, eventually come to fruition.
