The Law of the Harvest

God’s Word reveals a universal truth in Galatians 6:7-9, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, from this he will reap. If one sows to the flesh, he shall from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit shall from the Spirit reap eternal life. Let us not grow weary in doing good, for in due time we shall reap.”

The Boy Scouts of America voted to depart from protective Biblical Truth as their standard for moral conduct and selected the shifting currents of our culture by approving the participation of openly homosexual Boy Scouts. It is another example of our culture unwisely exchanging God’s truth and protective moral prohibitions for an “anything goes” mentality. The ancient fallacy of “if it feels good then do it” was the flawed moral compass for the Israelites during the days of the Judges: “In those days there was no king in Israel, and every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” The Israelites sowed the seed of disregarding God’s truth and reaped a horrible harvest of conflict and bondage.

God wired us with a free will and the ability to make choices. However, when we choose to disregard God’s protective guidelines it is equivalent to sowing a bad seed that will yield a hurtful harvest. Nature tells us about the law of the harvest and how it works:

    1.    You will reap the SAME as you sow
    2.    You will reap MORE than you sow
    3.    You will reap LATER than you sow

Condoning homosexual Boy Scouts plants a bad seed that will lead to a sad harvest.

Please do not misunderstand my intent. As a Jesus-follower, I love and respect ALL PEOPLE. I am an encourager. Yet God calls His sincere followers to be TRUTH TELLERS.  God lovingly warns us, “There is a way that SEEMS right to a man but the result is death.” (Proverbs 14:12) I deeply believe that God is real and His Word is true. God’s Word tells us that homosexual behavior hurts people so it is prohibited to protect us. Romans 1:26-27 clearly explains, “God gave them over to shameful lusts.  Even their women exchanged the natural relations for unnatural ones.  In the same way the men abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another.  Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.” Furthermore, Jesus affirmed God’s design for our sexual expression in Matthew 19:4-5, “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female and said, ‘for this cause a man shall leave his Father and Mother and shall cleave to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’” God designed sexual connections for propagating the human family through Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve!

The Point: You can disregard God’s truth and moral standards, but in the end, God will not be mocked and His Law of the Harvest will not be repealed by a group’s vote or the President’s affirmation.
