There is a Chinese proverb that says, “He who seeks vengeance must dig two graves: one for his enemy and one for himself.” The word of God advises us not to seek vengeance; but rather allow God to intervene on our behalf because He is the perfect judge. Rom. 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
If we bring vengeance to a personal wrong, then there is a law of sowing and reaping that is at work in our world and the constant exacting of an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth will never end. As someone once said, "You will end up with a bunch of blind toothless people."
This verse is good news to me because I want to reap what I sow in the kingdom of God for me and my family. I want the favour of the Lord's blessing whatsoever I put my hands and heart to doing. I want the Holy Spirit leading and teaching me how to sow to the Spirit of God that I may excel in my Christian walk. Yes, Lord, let me reap what I sow.
Heb. 8:12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. With God, there is always a fresh and merciful start. Lam. 3:22 It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassion's fail not. 23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
When we are sowing according to His will, then how great a crop shall we receive. Isaac sowed in a time of famine and the God-given result was blessing. Gen. 26:12 Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the LORD blessed him. God loves the success that He helps us accomplish. Now, let's get sowing, and we will receive a joyful crop of God's goodness.
