Except that is not always true. Sometimes the grace of God breaks in in a new way, and what is sown is not what is reaped.
Still thinking about Dylann Roof and the murders in Charleston. He sowed hatred, violence, and what he hoped would be a beginning of a race war. Instead, the harvest (so far) has been forgiveness, peace, and a sense of unity across racial lines that almost defies explanation. Governor Haley said that what Roof did was “inconceivable.” What is really inconceivable was not his heinous acts, but the response of people in Charleston, across South Carolina, and through our country.
Sometimes you don’t reap what you sow. That gives even me hope.
Thanks be to God.
