Paul used another farming analogy to explain to the Galatians that whatever they spent their time and energy on would determine how their life would turn out. “Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.” (Galatians 6:7-8) He then reminded them to keep on doing good even when they were not getting instant gratification. “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” (Galatians 6:9-10) Paul’s words are still fitting for us today just as much as they were for the Galatians.
