Sow the Wind, Reap the Whirlwind
Hosea 8:7 “For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind…”
There is a principle of life called sowing and reaping. You have probably heard it said that you will reap what you sow. The world does not live by this principle. It is happy to influence people to recklessly go through life ignorant of any consequences for their actions. This is not a Bible teaching. The Bible teaches that for every action, there are consequences. You will reap what you sow. If you sow substance, you will reap substantial benefits. If you sow wind, you will reap more wind.
Dr Blue uses this principle to show how it is more important to emphasize character than it is to look at talent. Talent can be developed, but character can not. A person of character can be taught any talent, but a person of talent cannot be taught character.
The most foolish thing a person can do is to waste their life. Today we are living in an age where lives are wasted wholesale. God never intended for lives to be wasted. He intends for lives to be full of purpose. He intends for proper sowing to be done so that correct reaping can be accomplished.
What we sow, can have far reaching effects. Like sowing seeds to the blustery wind will blow all over the place, so does living a poor Christian life. “Christian mistakes” cannot be covered up. They are seeds that are sown. They will grow in unwanted fields and destroy innocent lives.
If you want to see how your life can have far reaching effects on others, this AUDIO SERMON is something you need to hear. It will cause you to evaluate how you are living for the Lord so that you can lessen the problems you pass on to those you love.
