DAILY READINGS: Ezra 10:1-44; Daniel 11:1-20; Revelation 6:1-17

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Galations 6:7

What would you think about a farmer who said he planted potatoes, but reap corn instead? If God were to allow people to sow one thing, but reap another it would cause us to question both His power and His integrity. What a comfort to those who have been mistreated by others. One day, all will be put right. Anything less would be a mockery to the God of the universe! —Lynn Shatford

His purposes will ripen fast, unfolding every hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste, but sweet will be the flower. —William Cowper
