Proverbs 11:27 (NKJV) He who earnestly seeks good finds favor, But trouble will come to him who seeks evil.
When a person’s motives are not mixed with guile, he or she will have the respect of others. But whoever is out to cause trouble for others will get it for himself or herself. It is another way of saying, “What goes around comes around.” Meaning to say that if someone threats other people badly, he or she will eventually be treated badly by someone else. The Apostle Paul may have had Proverbs 11:27 in mind when he said, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap” (Galatians 6:7 NKJV). This is an immutable law. It is invariable, unalterable, unchangeable and cannot be revoked. What you sow you will reap. It is like they say, “chickens come home to roost.” You may think that you are a believer and therefore all your sins are forgiven, and you are right to say that. But there are consequences for sin. Because God disciplines His children. You won’t get away with sin. Don’t deceive yourself. Don’t use your salvation as a get out of jail free card. God will not be mocked. There are consequences for sin. God disciplines His children, because He loves them. Now, the world will have you think that discipline is not love. There is even a commercial that tries to convince people that discipline is not love. The Bible teaches us otherwise. “For whom the Lord loves He corrects, Just as a father the son in whom he delights” (Proverbs 3:12 NKJV). “For whom the Lord loves He chastens, And scourges every son whom He receives” (Hebrews 12:6 NKJV). Even as a child of God, you will still reap what you have sown. Therefore, my friend, be upright, honorable and honest, in all your ways.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
