Sin has a strange way of catching up with us. A man named Horace Gray stood before a judge in a courthouse awaiting his sentence. He knew he was guilty of the crimes he had been charged with, but he was released because of a loophole in the law.

Horace may have been freed from the law, but he didn’t count on having to face justice. Years after his court appearance, Horace got involved in crime again. This time, he went to Belgium and started stealing. After taking his loot, he climbed over an 8-foot wall into a dark room. It turned out to be a jail. Horace’s sins had found him out.

There is a law of sowing and reaping that every one of us has to abide by. It doesn’t matter how old you are, what family you were born into, your race, or the amount of money you have. We will all reap what we’ve sown someday.

It’s our choice: we can sow bad things now and pay later, or we can sow good things now and get blessed later. It only makes sense that we sow good things we won’t be ashamed to reap when harvest comes.

This applies to every area of our lives: our relationships, our spiritual lifestyle, and even our eating habits. What we sow is what will grow. I hope that you’re sowing with the harvest in mind today.

When you think that all is hidden and no one can see within: Remember, Friend, God can. — Unknown Author
