“…Edom, what you have done, will be done to you, you will get back what you have given…”Obadiah 1:15 (GNT)

As a believer, do you want to be treated honorably by others? Well, if your answer is yes, then you must begin by treating others well. The reason is that what you give to others is what you get back. Our actions always determine what we get back from others. Sadly, many people do not recognize this truth. They treat others very badly and expect good treatment in return; well, that is not going to happen because it is written, “…whatever a man sows that he will also reap…” Galatians 6:7 (NKJV)

So, as you journey in your Christian walk, I ask you this question, how have you been treating others? How have you been handling matters that pertain to other people? Do you treat them with love? Do you show some level of concern from a genuine heart? Now, the reason for this question is to help you come to a moment of truth. Sometimes, we live our lives not minding any of these, but the truth remains that, if we haven’t been nice to people, then we should not expect much from others. As simple as this might sound, it holds the key to the kind of treatment we will receive from others. In our opening text, God said to the people of Edom, “…what you have done, will be done to you, you will get back what you have given…” Obadiah 1:15 (GNT). In their case, they didn’t treat others the right way, so God promised them that they would get back what they had given. How sad! This is something you wouldn’t want for yourself. So, I admonish you today to make a conscious decision to treat others nicely. Give out what you expect in return. Praise God!


Always remember that your actions are seeds, and they will surely bring forth fruits!


Father, I am grateful for this wonderful counsel, and I thank you for reminding me that my actions are seeds. Therefore, I choose this day to treat others nicely; I choose to treat people the way I want to be treated, and as I do this, I am walking in the blessings of treating others well in Jesus name. Amen!
