Principle #9- We lose our freedom to choose when we give in to temptation. The consequences of our choices are inevitable, incalculable and up to God.
Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. The sowing of choices always brings a harvest of consequences. We harvest what we sow; we harvest more than we sow; the farmer that sows corn will grow a cornfield. It’s those choices that we make; we are free to make good choices or bad choices, but we must remember that those choices we make will also produce a harvest. The man or woman who decides to have an affair, get behind the wheel of their car after ingesting drugs or alcohol will reap a harvest; and the harvest will cost much more than they were willing to pay. The affair will not stay hidden and the price tag could be your family? Stop and think is it worth it? The one that drives while drinking or doing drugs could cost you your life or the life of another; is it worth it? The quick look on the internet at inappropriate material will stay in your mind maybe a life time; is it worth it? Those unkind words that went flying out of your mouth before you realized what you were really saying could destroy a lifelong friendship; is it worth it? Judas chose to sale the Lord out; if we could ask him was it worth it I’m sure he would say NO! Peter denied the Lord not once or twice but three times; was it worth it Peter? NO! If you plant it you’re going to reap it. So let’s work on sowing that which will please the Lord and will be worth the reaping.
