Truth and Consequences

It has been said that we can choose our actions but we can’t choose the consequences of those actions. We can control what we choose to do, but we can’t control what the consequences of our choices will be.

We would love to be able to control all of the consequences of our choices. Then we could do whatever we wanted to do and never have to experience anything bad as a result. That would be great for our sinful nature. We could enjoy any sinful pleasure we wanted and never get caught or suffer any negative consequences.

In order to protect us from ourselves, our all-wise God has ordained that our choices will have consequences. Gal. 6:7,8 states, “whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.” This is God’s gracious provision to prevent us from destroying ourselves.

If we allow ourselves to be deceived by the world’s lies, we will experience painful consequences. But if we apply the truth of God’s Word under the direction of the Spirit, we will enjoy God’s blessings. Let’s choose God’s truth so we won’t suffer the painful consequences of sin.
