Or as we read in Galatians 6:7-8, “A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature will reap destruction.” If we choose to make our way through life without God, we are just making a difficult life here on earth even harder. Now, the decision is entirely ours…but remember this, we all have to live with the consequences of our decisions…and the misery is brought about by no one else but ourselves. Or as Job observed, “Hardship doesn’t spring from the soil, nor does trouble sprout from the ground. Yet man is born to trouble as surely as sparks fly upward.” (Job 5:6-7) Thanks to Adam and Eve, we come into this world equipped with the sin nature… but it’s our choice what we do about it.
