YOU SHALL REAP WHAT YOU SOW



Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, “I find no pleasure in them Ecclesiastes 12:1 says that (NIV)

From the above cited Scripture, the Word of God speaks to young people, that they should remember their Creator. Christianity is not just for the old people, but for everyone including the youth. Young people need to know that it is dangerous to keep on postponing giving one’s life to Jesus. Sometimes in old age, a person can fail to make the right decisions because his mind is affected by his age.

Even in Deuteronomy 30:19, it is said: “…I have set before you today life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life…” God wants us to choose life and blessings but He gives us the right to choose. He does not force us to do anything.

Some people avoid taking responsibility for their choices in life, and they would say “why would God not decide” for them. Know that God has given man the freedom to choose between life and death and between blessings and curses. Obedience to God’s word will bring life and blessings and disobedience will result into death and curses.

One of God’s principles is found in Galatians 6: 7-8 “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 8 Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.”

From this, we learn that everyone shall reap what they sow. Everyone should then understand and make a decision on whether to sow to please their flesh or to please the Spirit. We can choose ways that destroy our lives or build up our lives for a bright future. A man shall reap what he sows.

Some young people say “we are still young, and we will live any way we desire” and they forget that they are sowing seeds for their tomorrow in whatever that they do. If you sow goodness, you shall reap goodness and if you sow evil you are going to reap evil. You cannot live carelessly and expect to have a good future.
