YOU REAP MORE THAN YOU SOW

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9

It isn't until you begin to fight in your own cause that you become really committed to winning, other people struggling for their freedom too. In this context of caring for one another, Paul instructs those who are taught to support those who teach them.

What we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action. Sow an act and you reap a habit. Sow a habit and you reap a character. Sow a character and you reap a destiny.

Paul point is that God’s people should not share in all good things with him who teaches because it is good for the teacher. If we want to reap to the Spirit, we should not hesitate to sow to the Spirit with whatever resources God has given us.

A farmer reaps the same as he has sown. If he plants wheat, wheat comes up.  In the same way, if we sow to the flesh, the flesh will increase in size and strength. The farmer reaps the same as he has sown, but not exactly.  The apple seed doesn’t just grow more apple seeds, but more apples with seeds.  Even so, when we sow to the Spirit – even with material things – what we reap are not necessarily material things, but something better: As we wisely manage our resources before God under the principle of sowing and reaping, we need patience.  This is because the harvest does not come immediately after you sow the seeds.

God is driving your life, stop struggling with him.
