Sow sin, reap trouble

Something to think about...
1Co 15:36 Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:

We sow more than we reap. We sow handfuls, and reap bushels; we sow bushels and reap granaries; the sin grows slowly, but it grows. It spreads itself and multiplies itself sevenfold. This principle is infinitely more true in the spiritual realm than in the natural realm; we reap what we have sown.
Not only do we reap in an abundance from our seeds of sin, but others reap because of us! Often our families suffer the reproaches of our sin, unto the third and fourth generation. Our friends are affected by our deeds and the reaping of sinful seeds that are sown; yes, and often everyone we spend great amounts if time with are also tainted by our sin. It is a dreadful thing, this thing called sin. As my opening statement implies, we reap infinitely more than we sow; we reap a multitude when we have sow only a little, we reap a harvest from a handful. In this sense, we become serial killers, spreading plagues of sin, affecting the multitudes with an epidemic, because when sin has finished its course, it brings death with it.
