Physics was one of the classes I enjoyed I high school. I saw myself as an engineer when studying it but never mind what happened. I still remember Isaac Newton’s third law of motion; for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. This scientific law corresponds to the universal law of cause and effect which states that for every effect there is a definite cause and vice versa. Life is based on this principle where we become aware early in life that our actions attracts consequences whether good or bad. The most unfortunate thing is the fact that we can only control one variable and that is our actions but not the reaction and as they say, we can choose our kicks but not the kickbacks. This reminds me of the words of Moses in the scriptures warning the Israelites before his death. He reminded them that should they choose to rebel against God and sin, their sins will definitely find them out. We always talk of the long arm of the law but there is no longer arm like the arm of God Almighty pursuing sin. Moses reminded them it may take time but eventually their wrong doing will catch up with them. The same warning was repeated by Nahum the prophet who warned that God does not allow evil doers to go scot free. It may take time yes and we may even forget what we did but God does not forget. The only cure for sin is that it must be dealt with; either we confess it and find forgiveness or we assume it and allow it to catch up with us where God punishes it. Where are you guilty is something and you tend to think God has forgotten? Where have you covered some misdeeds under the carpet in the hope that it will never be known? How will the actions you do today, the words you speak today, the way you treat people today rebound back to you, when your actions eventually catch up with you? You can be sure that your sin will find you out and what you do today, will one day come looking for you. Act the way you want but always remember, Payday is on the way!
““But if you fail to do this, you will be sinning against the Lord; and you may be sure that your sin will find you out.”Numbers 32:23 NIV
