How soon we forget

(Referencing 2nd Samuel 12:1-10).

Everyone who is still living has a past, yet sometimes our past has a tendency to come back and haunt us… especially when it comes to the actions of our past. May of us are facing dire situations NOW because of the things we have sown before, and even though we have changed our lives and sought to become better people through the help of Our Lord and Savoir Jesus Christ, we still have a harvest that must be atoned for.

David had a man killed because of his lust for the mans wife. He was then reminded of his great transgressions by Nathan the prophet and even though it wasn’t necessarily the deed the David forgot about, but the fact that God was there when the deed was done. David, who had be shown GREAT FAVOR by God throughout his life made a choice to sow great treachery for the lust of a woman which, in turn, cause great calamity which spread through the generations.

Many of us ask why things are happening in our lives, why no one seems to care, or we can’t get ahead, or we can win for losing, yet this could be the harvest from those things that we FORGOT that we had sown.

Why don’t anyone love me? Is it because you didn’t love when you had the chance?
Why wont anyone help me? Is it because you didn’t help when you had the chance?

Galatians 6:7-8 is straight forward and without exception. We must harvest that which we sow and no matter how many churches we have joined, and no matter how many good deeds we think we can do to offset our prior deeds, our harvest is inevitable. What I have learned that even in my atonement, God is still with me and will see me through, as God is with all of us, yet now we have the opportunity to sow those things WORTH remembering, instead of things that we would strive hard to forget.
