Memory Verse

“You harvest what you plant”

Audio Icon   Galatians 6:7



In this episode, Liz learns a hard lesson about reaping what you sow. This is a lesson that you start learning as a young child. You may get away with things for a while, but eventually it catches up with you and you are reminded again that what you sow, you will reap.

Everyone sins, all the time. And, when you sin, you need a savior. But God does not leave you without hope. This is one time where you don’t reap what you sow. You deserve a punishment for your sins. Instead Jesus takes your punishment. Those who believe and trust in him are free from the consequences of sin and free from death. You don’t earn it and you don’t deserve it. But God takes away the consequence because of his great love for us. Love is what God sows and eternal life is what you reap.

Want to dig deeper about making good decisions? Read Proverbs 3:5-6, Jeremiah 29:11 and James 1:5


Reaping what you sow means that your choices will have consequences—either for good or bad. God can still forgive you even if you make a bad choice. But you still will have to face consequences. Think of a situation where you might have to make a difficult choice. Write it down. Beside, make two columns: Good Consequences and Bad Consequences. Share your thoughts with your family and listen to their ideas as well. Encourage each other to make a wise decision. Ask God for help. The consequences just may delight you!
