What Are You Eating?

by sandihester

Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the Lord until He comes and showers righteousness on you.  But you have planted wickedness, you have reaped evil, you have eaten the fruit of deception.  Because you have depended on your own strength… Hosea 10:12-13

What a convicting, straightforward, and in your face scripture.  God tells us to sow, reap, and break up because it’s time – right now – to seek the Lord.  Notice that the wickedness we planted, the evil we reaped, and the deception we ate was all BECAUSE WE DEPENDED ON OUR OWN STRENGTH.  YIKES!!!  We forfeit righteousness and unfailing love because of our daily dependence on ourselves.
