Life and Consequences

The present age appears to be characterized by the perception that one should not be forced by circumstances of his actions to endure any pain, discomfort, or inconvenience as a result. Those who are older learned early that such was not the case at all. They knew what the old adage “You have made your bed hard, so you must lie in it” meant. It meant simply that when one made a bad decision he had to live with whatever unpleasant consequences that decision brought on.
Clearly, the Bible teaches man that he shall reap ill consequences for his ill deeds as this passage indicates, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” (Gal. 6:7).
One only has to read what the Israelites brought upon themselves as a result of their waywardness. Babylonian captivity was the direct result if their disobedience to God. They reaped accordingly. The prophets warned them, but they paid no attention. “For they have sown the wind and they shall reap the whirlwind: it hath no stalk: the bud shall yield no meal: if so be it yield, the strangers shall swallow up” (Hosea 8:7).
Men today are sufficiently warned, as has been noted, not only of immediate consequences of their deeds, but of the impending judgment—and the day of accounting for every man. Listen to Paul’s warning: “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (2Cor. 5:10);…So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God” (Rom. 14:12).

"It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor.”
George Washington

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful” (Psalm 1:1).
