“So they hanged Haman on the gallows he had prepared for Mordecai. Then the king's fury subsided.” – Esther 7:10
 
Evangelist Billy Graham told the following story about sowing and reaping: “I heard a story about a man who told his son, “Don’t go into that watermelon patch. The melons aren’t ripe yet.” Then the father drove into town. The boy went out to the watermelon patch and found one melon that he knew was ripe. He pulled it, broke it over some rocks, and ate it. He knew he had done wrong. He knew he had disobeyed his father, but he hadn’t been caught.
Several weeks passed. As the father was driving a cow up from the pasture, he saw a strange thing on the other side of the fence. He saw little watermelon sprouts by some rocks. He dug by the new plants and saw the old rinds with seeds sprouting. He knew what had happened. The boy was caught.”
 
We do reap what we sow. Today in prayer, confess to the Lord any sin in your life and seek to be Christ-like in all that you do.
 
“How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in life you will have been all of these.” – George Washington Carver
 
God’s Word: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.” – Galatians 6:7
