  • From a Mothers Heart for the week of March 29, 2012

    Bea Wallen
    From a Mothers Heart
    Consider the consequences of your sins
    “But if you do not do so then take note, you have sinned against the Lord; and be sure your sin will find you out” (Numbers 32:23).
    For every action, there is an opposite and equal reaction; for every sin or wrong action there are corresponding, continuing consequences. In other words we reap what we sow.
    With many acts or thoughts there are definite good or bad consequences. Obedience or disobedience to God and His word bring good or bad consequences.
