    Topic: A Universal Truth

    The principle of sowing and reaping is a law of life.

    The principle of reaping what you sow, more than you sow, and later than you sow, applies to everyone —both Christians and non-Christians. It is a law of life. Notice what Paul says in Galatians 6:7: “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked.” This is the root cause of the careless and indulgent lifestyle of many people: They are deceived.

    People who reject the notion either do not believe the truth or think they will somehow be the exceptions to God’s laws.

    To mock God is to turn up one’s nose at Him and hope to outwit Him. It is a foolish thought because, as Paul explains in 2 Corinthians 5:10, “We must all
    appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.

    ” The author of Hebrews adds, “It is appointed for [all] men to die once, but after this the judgment”
    (9:27).

    You cannot sow disobedience and
    expect blessings. The fact that you reap what you sow is good news if you sow good habits, but it’s a frightening
    thought if you are currently involved in ungodly activities.

    Just as you cannot sow crabgrass and
    expect to reap pineapples, you cannot sow
    disobedience and expect to reap God’s blessings. So do not be deceived: You will reap the harvest of your
    life.
    “They set up kings, but not by
    Me; they made princes, but I did
    not acknowledge them. From
    their silver and gold they made
    idols for themselves—that they
    might be cut off. Your calf is
    rejected, O Samaria! My anger is
    aroused against them—how long
    until they attain to innocence?

    For from Israel is even this: a
    workman made it, and it is not God; but the calf of Samaria shall be broken to pieces. They sow the wind, and reap the whirlwind. The stalk has no bud;
    it shall never produce meal. If it
    should produce, aliens would
    swallow it up” (Hosea 8:4–7)
