We Reap What We Sow

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9
This bible verse represents so many things: hope, the importance of faith and God’s grace, the value of hard work, and its essential ingredient, and influence, to the foundation and success of our Republic – our free enterprise system.
How can one dream and aspire without God’s whisper of inspiration? How can one endure failing at that attempt without God’s grace? How can one try again and again to achieve that dream without God’s beckoning and strength?
If we persevere, and if our mission is worthy and good, with God’s guidance, we will reap a harvest – eventually. If we have faith then we will accept whatever reality that harvest becomes – which may not be the one we first envisioned but, with God on our team, it is always better than what we could’ve ever imagined.
These are the principles upon which our founding fathers built our Republic. These are the principles of free men. It’s when government becomes God that we are limited – by the very limited, fallible, egocentric, sinful nature of men. This is why God is an essential element to freedom. Men constrain, hence government constrains, simply because it consists of mortal men. Who would you rather have on your side – God or government?
