Sowing and reaping is a part of this chapter. The backslider and the wise person are compared as to fruit. Not just that you receive consequences but that you are filled with them. This means that it leaves little room for other stuff and is supposed to satisfy. But a foolish life won’t satisfy as much as leave no room for repentance.

I have always appreciated the proverb about the oxen. A clean life is not necessarily a productive one.

What are you filled with?
