Sowing and then reaping

An intersting line in the first reading today from the prophet Habakkuk:

How long, Lord, am I to cry for help while you will not listen...

It was probably wirtten between 605 BC/CE and 597 BC/CE.

In any organistion where there is poor and dishonest management one is also reminded of the line in Paul's Letter to the Galatiants:

Where a man sows, there he reaps.

Said in modern speak: What goes around comes around.

The Irish harvest season has come to an end. Farmers say the yield is somewhat down on last year.

There are many poor harvests.
