Do Not  Be Deceived

It’s sad  how the behavior  of some people  in this world  is able  to deceive  so many others.     From early on,  we see people getting away  with cheating,  lying,  stealing,  slandering,  and committing every other sort  of sin.     They seem  to get away  with it  —  and actually get great benefits  from it.     We want benefits  —  don’t we?     Why should we go  without benefits  of any sort  when others  are having a great time  —  fancy free?

With that thought,  many are blind-sided.     They do seem  to get away  with their sins  —  but,  that’s not the end  of their story.     Galatians 6:7  gives us  an eternal truth,

Do not  be deceivedGod is not mocked;  for whatever  a man sows,  this he will  also reap.

Our whole lives  need  to be lived  knowing  that  “God  is not mocked”.     Yes,  we see many seemingly  getting away  with their belligerent sinfulness  and arrogant attitudes.     They do seem  to be successful  and enjoying life.     But,  their deliberate sins  are only paving  the way  to their eternal condemnation.

If we sow lies  —  we will reap lies  that will destroy us eternally.     If we sow hatefulness  —  we will reap a hate  that destroys us forever.     If we sow thievery  —  we will reap  having eternal life stolen  from us.     “God is not mocked;  for whatever a man sows,  this he will also reap.”

It’s a sad ending  for all eternity.

On the bright side,  if we sow  faith,  hope,  and love,  we will reap  the rewards  of all good things  in eternal life.     With our faith,  hope,  and love,  we will joyfully strive  for God’s truths,  and certainly praise  the beautiful wonders  of His loving ways  of eternal salvation.

Glad  in God’s merciful love,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  thank You  for being our Good Shepherd  throughout this life.”

Love,
Margaret
