Galatians 5:7- Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.
“Be not deceived” “God is not mocked.” God cannot be deceived! Do not disrespect, dishonor or ignore God's authority. He sees and knows all things that we say and do.
Do not trick yourself into believing that we have the power to mock God by sowing one thing and reaping another. There are consequences for ignoring God’s authoritative instructions that are written in His Word called the Bible.
We can't fool God, only ourselves! We all will find this out when we one day meet Him face to face.
Scripture declares that we will reap that which we have sown. What are you sowing? Love or hate? Are you sowing peace and joy, kindness, a positive attitude, respect, hope, encouragement, self-control, patience and goodness? Or, are you sowing envy, jealousy, deceit, disobedience, strife, confusion, evil, wickedness, disrespect and or disregard to others and to God?
What are you sowing? An old adage is this: "what goes around comes round".
If you plant bananas, you will reap bananas. If you plant apples, grapes, corn, tomato, beans, peppers, watermelon, etc. You will reap of that which you have planted.
The same applies to our personal lives. What we do will come back to us. Our lives today are a result of the seeds we have sown in our yesterdays. Our tomorrow will be the result of the seeds we sown the day before.
What are you sowing? Let's listen to how a few of God's people describe sowing and reaping.
Job 4:8-My experience shows that those who plant trouble and cultivate evil will harvest the same.
Hosea 8:7-"They have planted the wind and will harvest the whirlwind. The stalks of grain wither and produce nothing to eat. And even if there is any grain, foreigners will eat it.
2 Corinthians 9:6-Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.
The end of the works of darkness is death. Spiritual separation from God.
What are you sowing? Where are you sowing? Scripture declares in Galatians 6:8-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.
There are all kinds of seeds to be sown in this world, but as Christians, we sow not as the world sows. We have been entrusted by God to sow seeds of the Gospel. As we sow the seeds of the Gospel, we will surely reap a harvest of eternal life with God.
Saints, do not grow weary in well doing for in due season, we will reap a harvest if we faint not. A Crown of life awaits us in Heaven, whose hope is in the Lord.
The 2nd coming of Christ will be a day of reaping.
One day we all will give an account of what we have done in these bodies, be it good or evil.
Sowing and reaping is not a myth, but a guarantee.
What are you sowing?
God bless and I love you all.
