I've always seen it as a warning that punishment or "pay" for wrongdoing will always catch up with the sinner in the most ultimate way - - death. Not necessarily physical death but spiritual death. As a child, I thought it meant you were not a good person and did something wrong. When I heard my mother say it, I didn't think God would literally to strike a person down dead but that they would eventually have to pay for whatever they did that was wrong.
It means that when a person sins, the price to pay for that sin is spiritual death. Repentance is also a way of dealing with sin.
