One of life’s hardest lessons is that we cannot turn back the clock and change something we’ve already done. When we make a wrong decision or act foolishly, we have to live with the consequences, bitter as they may be. In biblical terms, we must reap what we have sown.
Then why bother to ask for God’s forgiveness? One reason is because it is the only way to deal with our guilt. Down inside we feel unclean and ashamed for what we’ve done – but when we turn to Christ and seek His forgiveness, that burden of guilt is lifted.
Do not be deceived…. A man reaps what he sows.
