7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 8 Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.
One of my friends who has gone through a hard time lately and I were talking about these well-known words of the the Apostle Paul. My friend said, “You know, you not only reap what you sow, you often reap more than you thought you would. That’s certainly been true of me. And I’ve reaped it later than I thought I would.”
