Tell the righteous that it shall be well with them,
for they shall eat the fruit of their deeds.
Woe to the wicked! It shall be ill with him,
for what his hands have dealt out shall be done to him
What we sow is what we reap. Never will a tomato plant bear a strawberry fruit. When we exhibit kindness to our fellowmen, we will also harvest the fruit of our good deed.
When we help the needy, time will come that when we are in need that those whom we have helped will come to our rescue. And when we obey God’s commands to live a righteous life, we shall be blessed as promised.
To those who do wicked things and feels pleasure on other people’s expense, one day God will punish them. Never will we escape God’s sight. He sees everything that we do and there is a corresponding consequence to every wrong action.
I know one way or another we’ve been mistreated, misjudged, discriminated, mocked or had experienced wicked things. Has justice not been served? Worry no more. Vengeance is in God’s hands. Verse eleven says, “For what his hands have dealt out shall be done to him.”
Apply the Golden rule if we want to live a peaceful and blissful life. Do unto others what you want others do unto you and do not do unto others what you do not want others do unto you.
God’s words are simple, it is our actions and reasons that complicate things.
