Scripture:   Galatians (NIV) 6:7  Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked.  A man reaps what he sows. 
8  Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. 

Observation:   What a strong statement we read about harvest.  God cannot be mocked.  To think that one can sow one kind of crop and reap another is foolish.  When I understand the seriousness of this law, I can greatly appreciate that Jesus step in to reap the harvest of the sin I had sown.   And by so doing, He set me free to reap the blessings of the seed he sowed in dying for me on the cross.     

Application:   It is good for me to remember that there is both a negative and positive application to this law.  I can sow to reap destruction OR I can so to reap eternal life.  Today I want to sow good things into people’s lives.  In that way I will be preparing for a future harvest of blessing.  It is too late to do any more about my present harvest, but I can do something about my future harvest. 

Prayer:   Lord, thank you for setting order in the universe by your laws.     Amen
