Do I deserve this?

We reap what we sow.  Sometimes its very good because we have sown the things that please our Father God and he lavishes a harvest of blessing on us.  Other times we have sown things that displease our Father God and we harvest the problems and consequences of those choices.

Paul is telling the Galatians and us today that we cannot mock the justice of God.  We get the harvest we deserve.

It’s our choice.  That’s always a hard one for me – I actually chose this.  I brought these consequences upon myself.

What is my problem!!!!!!?

Sin.  It always comes back to our mutual problem of sin.  We follow our own desires, we selfishly focus on ourselves first and sometimes we just give into the pressure from the culture around us.  Call it what you want, it’s all sin.

Rationalizing it away doesn’t work, acting like everything is ok doesn’t work, trying to be good and follow all the rules doesn’t work.

Nothing works except admitting we’re a sinner, then asking Jesus to save us and finally turning over our lives to his leadership.  The first part can happen in a few minutes.  The last step is a life-long process.

Dear Father, we praise you for the opportunity you have given us for salvation through your son.  Please help us each day to grow closer to you and to become more like Jesus.
