The scripture for today, August 7 (8/7), is Hosea 8:7 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
“They sow the wind and reap the whirlwind.”
This is the boomerang effect. You throw a boomerang into the air and no matter how we throw it, it always comes back to us. Just like a boomerang, God treats you the same way you treat him.
If you draw near to God, God draws near to you (James 4:8). If you don’t have time for God, God doesn’t have time for you. If you don’t want to do what he says, God doesn’t want to do what you say. If you reject God, God rejects you. Here are some verses about the boomerang effect:
Psalm 9:15-16; Psalm 10:2; Psalm 37:14-15; Psalm 140:9; Proverbs 3:34; Proverbs 6:27; Proverbs 26:27; Isaiah 33:1; Isaiah 59:18; Ezekiel 7:8; Obadiah 1:15.
The same is true with how people treat each other. If someone mistreats you, someday their mistreatment will boomerang right onto themselves.
On the other hand, if you treat others well, often it is a wakeup call to them. Huh? S/he smiled at me? Hmmm. I think I’ll try that. Boomerang!
