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
Making friends for time and eternity!
