love and judgment. Sometimes His judgment has to take over in your life to teach you things.... as you said you reap what you sow. God allows judgment through the cause and effect process. But when you come out of it you will hopefully have learned the lesson He's trying to teach you and be better for it.
And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
