Nation reaps what it sows

Last Sunday in church, I was reminded of the law of seedtime and harvest. The pastor reminded us that many of the problems we are having today are the result of seeds planted years ago — seeds of greed. The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil — seeds of lust, seeds of drunkenness and seeds of ungodliness.

I know many do not believe the Bible, but you cannot dispute that there is a law of seedtime and harvest. Trees, plants, flowers and even animals and humans begin with just a seed and have the ability to reproduce in their own likenesses.

If you want happiness, plant seeds of happiness. Respect, plant respect. Kindness, plant kindness. The same is true for, unhappiness, disrespect and greed.

We have been a blessed nation because we have honored God and his laws. We are at a place today where we are seeing what happens when we choose to turn our backs on those laws and make our own laws contrary to his.

Vote. May God continue to bless us and the United States of America.
