“Do not deceive yourselves; no one makes a fool of God. You will reap exactly what you plant.” (Gal 6:7 GNT)
In a certain State in the Union a millionaire was engaged in the bootlegging business, thinking it an easy way to increase his wealth. He now undoubtedly believes the verse quoted above, for he is at the present time serving a long term in prison.
A friend who called on him within the prison walls found him working, sitting cross-legged, with a big needle and a ball of twine, sewing burlap bags.
The friend, not knowing what else to say, remarked, "Sewing, eh?"
Looking up with an ill-natured smile, the man replied, "No, I'm reaping."
