I totally believe that we’re all equal before God; we’re all his sons & daughters. What makes us different isn’t so much who we are before God, but how we approach life – which He gave us.
“God is not a respecter of person, but a respecter of principles” – Bishop T.D. Jakes
God created life with the principle of a cycle; you give and get, ups and downs, left and right, forward and backwards etc. There’s certainly, as we see, no way for one to work without the other – everything goes hand in hand. Skipping the giving part and expecting to receive is not going to work out too well. On the other hand, what goes around comes back around; this installs the importance of honesty and not trying to cheat your way out.
„Be nice to people on your way up because you’ll meet them on your way down“ – Wilson Mizner
Indeed, it’s impossible to cheat your way through life and not to reap its consequence. I’m not even trying to scare you, mainly just telling you to watch how you treat life and others. Nevertheless, this remains true – You reap what you sow!
Having made that experience I wondered why certain situations in my life seem unfruitful. What could I’ve done to deserve to be hit with more than I could actually bear? I always thought God doesn’t give us more than we can handle…As I was asking myself all these confused questions; I heard a small voice saying:
“You’ve sown yourself into what you own and find yourself in.”
It hit me…although I’ve given God full custody over my life; it didn’t diminish the bad seed I’ve planted back then. God’s grace is always sufficient for us, however, the cycle of life remains, which means one will sow every seed sown. I just want you to leave with this… We are responsible for our actions, there’s no one that will own up to your mistakes. Nevertheless, since God is a good God, a giver of second chances; you can still come out of your situation.
Mistakes give you Wisdom; grow from each mistake and don’t do the same mistake twice.
Thank you for reading 🙂 until then, be blessed.
