Grace at Work

Friday, March 13th – Galatians 6:7-8 (NIV)
“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 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.”


This scripture is stressing that we need to sow spiritual seeds rather than seeds from the flesh.  Sowing is the process of planting the seeds and reaping is harvesting the finished product.
Sowing in this scripture is a metaphor for our actions as reaping is a result of those actions.  If we are not walking in the Lord we are disrespecting him or mocking him as the verse says.
When we are sowing in the flesh we are interested in pleasing ourselves rather than the spirit of God. 


Heavenly father, please give us hearts to desire to walk with you and be servants who are pleasing you rather than looking out for our own selfish needs and desires.  Help us to put others before ourselves as you did Lord.  I thank you too Lord that as we walk or sow in the spirit, your word says we will be rewarded.
