Consequence, something that happens as a result of a previous event or occurrence, the effect, or outcome of something earlier. There is a consequence to every sequence of events, whether it is something that was said or done earlier. Some consequences rather grow us, and when we anticipate in advance what the consequence of an action is, we act accordingly to either avoid or make sure that consequence happens.
If we steal, crook and cheat on people, the consequence could be end of life, someone else treating you the same or loss of something precious. If you are honorable, live with dignity and have charity in your heart for example, the consequences are positive. There is a common saying “think before you act”. Don’t let emotions and impulsiveness lead to an action for which the consequences could be irreversible.
