Life they say, can not owe any man. Life gives man back every of his investment in it. That is why it is true that life is a reflection of our actions. This is why it is good to sow good seeds in our daily endeavours. You can’t plant orange seed and expect to harvest yam. It is exactly what you put in to life that you will get back. If a child sow laziness in his academics, his expectation is an automatic failure. If he tries to cheat in his examination, and get passed mark, that is not the end. Future is waiting for him to pay back.
The word of God says in Galatians 6:7-9: Be not deceived; “God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not”. The word of God is a life in itself that guides every child of God.
The story below shows the perfect description of this life lesson:
A son and his father were walking in the mountains. Suddenly,his son falls, hurts himself and screams: “AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!” To his surprise, hears the voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain: “AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!” Curious, he yells: “Who are you?” He receives the answer: “Who are you?” Angered at the response, he screams: “Coward!”
He receives the answer: “Coward!” He looks to his father and asks: “What’s going on?” The father smiles and says: “My son, pay attention.” And then he screams to the mountain: “I admire you!”
The voice answers: “I admire you!” Again the man screams: “You are a champion!” The voice answers: “You are a champion!” The boy is surprised, but does not understand.
Then the father explains: “People call this echo, but really this is life. It gives you back everything you say or do. Our life is simply a reflection of our actions.
If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart. If you want more competence in your team, improve your competence. This relationship applies to everything,in all aspects of life; life will give you back everything you have given to it.”
