THE DISPROPORTIONATE LIFE
Am I taking responsibility for my life, really?
A principle is not good or bad.
Principle: People reap what they sow.
God is not against you.
If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important. Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. For we are each responsible for our own conduct. Galatians 6:3-5 NLT
If I focus on you, I will make excuses.
If I focus on me, I will make progress.
Those who are taught the word of God should provide for their teachers, sharing all good things with them. Galatians 6:6 NLT
Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Galatians 6:7 NIV
Life is connected.
Forgiveness doesn't erase this principle.
God loves you so much that He let you know about this principle ahead of time and made it predictable.
You reap later and greater.
This principle is not fair.
God is not going to remove the principle.
Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit. So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith. Galatians 6:8-10 NLT
So what do I do about that?
-I'm going to quit blaming and excusing.
-I'm going to begin to do the things I should have been doing all along.
