Sowing and Reaping Is Real!

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. (8) For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” Galatians 6.7-8

What a great tragedy we often see in the lives of some Christ-followers who want to go out and “sow their wild oats” and then pray for a crop failure. Remember, “whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap”. This principle has been true since the beginning of time. As long as my desires for life are controlled by MY spirit, I remain in a desperate situation, always wanting to “sow to the flesh.” It is only when I am willing to “sow to the Spirit” that I shall “of the Spirit reap life everlasting.”
I don’t think any of us would PURPOSELY mock God, but there are times when our actions APPEAR to be contrary to what God wants for us, and His name is mocked in ignorance. Would it be a worthwhile task today to ask God’s CONTINUAL guidance in our THOUGHTS, our ATTITUDES, and our BEHAVIOR? The world will NEVER see their need of a Savior because of the way we are living until the way we are living does not mock God, but gives glory to His name. Such a lifestyle is a conscious choice that we must make daily. I pray the Holy Spirit will help you today to NOT sow to the flesh, but to sow to the Spirit and thereby give God the glory due His name. Just My Thoughts  …
