William Horsburgh from Ryedale Evangelical church spoke on Proverbs chapter 10 and reminded us in the New Testament that the Apostle Paul wrote:
"Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. Gal 6 v , 7 and 8
In the christian life you reap what you sow, your growth has consequences. It's cause and effect.
There are long term consequences
Prov 10 v25 When the whirlwind passes by, the wicked is no more,
But the righteous has an everlasting foundation.
The foundation is Christ not what I've done, not my works but Christ's work and God's grace
Prov 10 v27 The fear of the LORD prolongs days,
But the years of the wicked will be shortened.
The choices you make will have consequences. If we are careless in the christian life this will result in us not enjoying the benefits in Christ.
