A man asked his servant to sow barley. The servant sowed oats. The master asked why he sowed oats. The servant replied, "I hoped to grow barley."
The master said, "What a foolish idea! Whoever heard the like?"
The servant replied, "You yourself constantly sow seeds of evil, and yet expect to reap the fruits of virtue."
Bible says: “A person harvests whatever he plants." (Gal. 6:7).

“The Lord made it very plain in the New Testament that believers cannot escape reaping the kind of harvest they have sowed. We cannot hide our sin; we will not get away with it. The secrets of the night are not hidden from God." - Theodore Epp.
