3 Galatians 6: Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. 8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. 9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith. 11 See with what large letters I have written to you with my own hand! Gal 6:7-11 (NKJV)
4 Select your seeds carefully What types of seeds are you sowing in life – those of the flesh or those of the Spirit?You have two dogs in your back yard…The flesh dog, and the Spirit dog – you only get one bowl of dog food per day. You get to choose which one gets fed…
5 A warning and promise Don’t fool yourself, God Knows!!!!! Genesis 8:22 – while the earth remains…Seedtime and HarvestCold and HeatWinter and SummerDay and NightThese are all absolutes
6 Apply this to your relationships! Do you have a relationship that is strife laden?Do you wish you were closer to someone who you lost touch with?As a husband and wife, do you invest time in each other?Do you approach relationships from a “lust” or “love” perspectiveLust is all about what you can get, Love is all about what you can give
7 Apply this to your parenting! What traits would you love them to have?What traits are you planting?What kind of harvest do you see growing?
8 Apply this to growing up! Do you want more responsibility?Do you want people to recognize your maturity?Do you sow into others growth and development?
9 Apply this to others salvation! Are you still throwing seeds out?Col 4:2-6Have you grown weary in doing good?Do you worry more about “your stuff” than “others stuff”?The great deception – it is all His stuff, He just allows us to steward it!
10 In due season Due season is not often the same timing as our season Ecc 3:1-13
