WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND
Galatians 6:7 – Don’t be misled: No one makes a fool of God. What a person plants, he will harvest. (MSG)
Kindness is like a fire that loses nothing by providing heat and light. No act of kindness is wasted because it has a way of reviving a weary heart. As God’s children, Colossians 3:12-17 admonishes us to be clothed with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience and forgiveness. It then says: “Above all these virtues, put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, and be thankful to God. Whatever you do, whether in word or action, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus.” When we live the life of Christ and heed to these Apostle Paul’s advice, we automatically sow good seeds that germinate and spread back in return.
There is a story of a poor farmer who was working on his farm when he heard a cry for help from a nearby swamp. There, he saw a terrified boy who was half sunk and struggling to free himself. The farmer saved the lad from what could have been a painfully slow death. The next day, the boy’s father (an aristocrat) visited the farmer and offered to give his son a quality education. In time, the farmer’s son graduated from a top Medical School and later discovered an antibiotic(s). Years later, the aristocrat’s child developed inflammation in his lungs, and it was the antibiotics that cured him.
Beloved, indeed, “what goes around surely comes around”. This phrase is scriptural and directly links with our Bible reading. A person will be paid back in his own coin. If you want love, give it out first—it will come back to benefit you, generations yet unborn and the body of Christ (John 13:35). More than ever before, selflessly give yourself to touching lives. Keep putting out the good; God sees and shall reward you (Hebrews 6:10). Finally, remember this: “Never look down on someone except when you are helping them up”. Be the reason for people’s smiles and a channel for their salvation.
Hymn – I Want to Be Like Jesus In My Heart – Deacon L. J. Bates (1926)
1. Father, empower me to love and reach out to others.
1. Father, neutralise every unholy dream and unprofitable vision in my life.
2. Lord Jesus, please do not reject me, my family and the Church.
3. Father, show me Thy mercy and deliver me from all struggles.
GOD BLESS YOU!
