Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary. (Galatians 6:9)
The consequences of reaping what one sows is a biblical principle that we should not take lightly. God is watching, and not, as the song goes "from a distance". He sees everything we do, say, and even think. And there are both positive and negative consequences; Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. (Galatians 6:7)
The biblical principle of reaping what you sow has significant consequences, even eternal consequences, because God himself will someday judge our words, actions and thoughts; ..For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. For it is written, "As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall give praise to God." So then each one of us will give an account of himself to God. (Romans 14:10-12)
The consequences (reaping what you sow) will be that Christians will receive or lose special blessings known as "crowns". These special crowns will be awarded by the Lord for saying, doing and thinking good things. Every true Christian's sins are forgiven and we can never lose our salvation because as Romans 8:1 says; Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. But, because of sins, we can lose these special crowns. You reap what you sow!
Those of us who are alive and know Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, still have many opportunities each day to earn more crowns; So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith. (Galatians 6:10). Get busy today sowing good while you still have opportunity and then you can look forward to reaping what you have sowed! Maranatha!
