You reap what you sow. Gone are the days when men do evil and think that they will go free. This time around anything you do to yourself or fellow human being, you are going to get the reward. If you do good, definitely you will be rewarded with good, if you do bad, you will be rewarded with bad, whatever you sow, that you shall reap.
For you to succeed, you have to work hard for it. If you mess up with your time, if you mess up with your opportunities, note that your harvest will be failure.
Don’t think it is over when you maltreat or hurt your fellow human being without getting the result instantly, as the saying goes ” Everyday is for the thief, but one day is for the owner of the house.”
