Galatians 6:7 “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.”
That's one thing that I have learned this year, in 2015. The results can either be bad or good but that all depends on how the person gets things done in the first place. For example, the amount of hard work and dedication put into your boxing training will bring out great results when it comes to the showdown. However, if inadequate lazy effort is put into the training be ready to perform badly.
Another example: the bible says to treat others, as you would like to be treated yourself (Luke 6:31). The same way you treat others is the same way they will treat you in return, if its with love then they will see and appreciate how you treat them, and in return will give you the same or more.
Knowing this we can now ask the Lord Jesus to guide us and help us make the right decisions in order to reap what we have carefully and diligently sowed through His help. Whether this includes treating each other with love (John 15:12) or building yourself financially, realising long-term goals or a more healthy life all things must be done with love and hard work.
