**Consequences**


Proverbs 14: 1 "The wise woman builds her house, but the foolish pulls it down with her hands."

With..her...hands!!! With her hands...with her own hands. Most things that happen to us are as a result of the seeds we've sown in a previous time and place, except they are things that God wants us to go through before we manifest our destinies. A seed can be defined as anything that we do in life, it could be being a lender to someone in need, it could be giving money for a good cause, it could be being a friend in need, and it could also be being a very wicked person. I used to think seeds were defined only in good terms, but I slowly learnt that bad seeds can also be sown. And the word of God says that "God is not deceived, whatsoever a man sows, he shall reap." So if you sow a good seed, you will reap a good seed and if you sow a bad seed, you will definitely reap a bad seed. The word REAP means that those things will come back to you in more ways than when you sowed them. Think about a farmer planting just one seed, of course when the seed grows into a mighty tree, it will produce a lot of fruit...so you don't "reap" seeds but you "reap" fruits, and every individual fruit contains several seeds. So it's definitely gonna come back to you in more ways than you know it...

If you've been mean to someone...someone is going to be terribly horrible to you one day...

If you've been a great help to someone in your past...then when you're in need, God will send help your way...

If you've destroyed someone else's body, yours is already on its way to destruction...

and the list goes on...

The only thing that can bring a good change to a bad seed is when you cry out to God for forgiveness, because there is no VERDICT that cannot be changed by God's mighty hands.

As per how this is related to the opening scripture, building a house is not necessarily physical, the little seeds we sow here and there can either build us either great houses or poor houses...

Therefore, sow your seeds wisely...be careful of what you do in this life...

I like this verse (kinda strange, huh?)... I also like the rest of it... the wise woman BUILDS her house... so the opposite of tearing down is not necessarily sitting back; it's taking our tools and materials in hand and putting things together.

@ Veracity...true, we all need to do that seriously. It's well...there are intercessors!

@ nilla...lol...thanks

@ barkat...yeah, building a house involves that (what u mentioned) and so many other things that may not be physical, but are rather emotional or spiritual...or any other thing that adds to a person (and does not subtract).
