“Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same.” Job 4:8. “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Galatians 6:7. “For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind:” Hosea 8:7.
This is the law of the universe. What you sow, you must reap. If fact, you will reap what you sow. You will reap after you sow, and you will reap more than you sow. “For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind.”
Those of you, who are determined to have sex with every person you date, have no idea what you are doing. First, you are dishonoring God, and your own body. Then you are exposing yourself to all kinds of incurable diseases. Then, many infants come into this world with no father, and in many cases the mother doesn’t even know who the father is. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, you are destroying your ability to trust the opposite sex, and you are setting yourself up for a life of insecurity. You will reap more than you sow.
The next harvest you will reap will be the results of cigarettes, alcohol, and the drugs you put in your body. If you think you can smoke, drink, use drugs, and not reap the consequences, you are the biggest fool in the county. Once these vices get hold of you, they will not let go. They become your master, and you become their slave. “Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same.” You may joke about it now, but you will not be laughing at harvest time.
Finally, you cannot be a companion of fools without becoming one yourself. You see, it is the books you read, and the people you associate with that mold, and make you. It is a slow process, but it is at work. By the time you realize what is happening, you will be there. Look around yourself. The people you follow are leading you to their lifestyle. There are too many warning about this in the Bible to list them. However, this one ought to wake you up, if anything will. “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed. Proverbs 13:20. You should read, and commit that verse to memory. If you insist on running with fools, then rest assured, you are one, or soon will be. “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” There’s no escape, keep sowing, but don’t wonder why you have the harvest you will reap when it comes, and come, it will.
