Today’s passage: Galatians 6:6-10
- The one who learns and the one who teaches are in this walk together.
- God can not be mocked, but we can be deceived.
- Sowing to the flesh (Living and teaching in a manner such as the legalistic Judaizers) will end in corruption.
- Sowing to the Spirit (Living and teaching in a manner such as Paul and those who proclaim the Gospel) will end in eternal life.
- Sowing in the realm of the flesh may result in immediate impact, but the impact will prove to be corrupted.
- Sowing in the realm of the Spirit will produce an eternal reward, which we may not see in this life.
- The time for sowing is now, the time for reaping is later.
Questions to consider:
- If we had to answer the question, “Can God be mocked?” We would certainly answer, “No.” In what way can our actions and our words say that we might believe otherwise in any given moment? Who has deceived us in those moments?
- If our eternal reward will be reaped in eternity, what sort of reaping might we expect to see more often in this life? If we see fleshly reaping in our own lives, what can we learn from that? How could our humble evaluation lead us toward repentance?
- Is anyone excluded from our acts of kindness in verse 10? Who is emphasized?
