I am always amazed when folks play the victim role when retribution is being issued to them. It is as if they want the entire world to feel sorry for them and pamper them in some outlandish way.
I am further amazed that during their time of reaping (PAYDAY) what they have sown, they instantaneously became poets, scripture reciters, and plaster the walls of various social networks with quotes and references such as “God made ugly but he don’t like it”, “God don’t sleep” “Today for me tomorrow for you”, “If you spit in the wind it will blow in your face”, and the all too common one “What goes around comes around”.
I have to now ask the question to these recent seminary graduates, where were these quotes and biblical references when you were sowing these seeds that has now come home to harvest in your life? News flash! Life has issued you your check that you have worked very hard for. I can assure you that this is one check that is never short.
You showed no mercy, compassion or consideration to others. Instead you were ruthless defiant and consistent with your well-orchestrated oppression towards others and gave special attention to the art of seeing to it that others do not progress. This same God of which you speak, was the same God that delivered you out of trouble, pulled you out of despaire and oppression and placed you in position, not only to promote his people but anyone that was deserving of a helping hand.
However, you thanked your God by oppressing and victimizing the people he’s place you in position to promote. You praised and rewarded the evil doer and acted upon their advice to keep God’s people under your feet………………. You assumed that because you were not immediately punished for your unjust acts, you were getting away with your crimes on humanity, in particular the people of God. My friend, scripture is clear and it reads as follows:
“Whoso rewardeth evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house” Proverbs 17:13
Your pride and arrogance had bewitched you of the reality that the seeds you were sowing then, were simultaneously securing a payday for you in the future, which you are currently unhappy with. Your manipulations lies and well choreograph misleading of others has left many with false expectations, hurt, frustration and bitterness.
Well, if you want to be honest with yourself you can begin by admitting that you’re not being unfairly paid. Instead, you are living the biblical law that clearly states, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” Galatians 6:7.
SEEING THAT YOU’VE MIRACULOUSLY DEVELOPED INTO A PERSON OF BIBLICAL REFRENCES AND QUOTATIONS DUE TO YOUR PRESENT DISLIKE POSITION, LET ME ASSIST YOU WITH A QUOTE THAT I AM SURE YOU’LL FIND QUITE RELATIVE……….
“WHEN YOU DUG ONE DITCH YOU SHOULD HAVE DUG TWO”
“Behold, the wicked brings forth iniquity;
Yes, he conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood.
He made a pit and dug it out, and has fallen into the ditch which he made.
His trouble shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down on his own crown” Psalm 7: 14-16.
My words of wisdom for today is simply this: treat others the way you desire to be treated. Children, the way you treat your parents, will be the same way your children will treat you. Employees, the way you treat your superiors, will be the same way your subordinates will treat you. I am sure that at the end of the day we can all agree that God surly doesn’t sleep.
