“Now ye may suppose that this is foolishness in me; but behold I say unto you, that by small and simple things are great things brought to pass; and small means in many instances doth confound the wise.” (Alma 37:6)
The laws that we have discussed to this point are all principles of thought and mindset. The Law of Cause and Effect, however, is a principle of action. Specific actions yield specific results. If you want a specific result, then you had better know what the necessary action is in order to receive it. We often refer to these results as the consequences of our actions. These consequences are manifestations of the Law of Cause and Effect.
Things around us act in predictable ways. When that pattern is interrupted, there is a change in the pattern which brings a new result. We call the interruption the cause, and the new result the effect.
The Law of Cause and Effect is known throughout the world by many names. My first introduction to it was as the Law of the Harvest, or as ye sow, so shall ye reap (see Galatians 6:7)….
..,often we think that the action required will be significant. Monumental, even. Maybe that will be the case. But when mindset is right, the necessary effort is often much smaller than we might think.
