I’m in the middle of getting ready for a funeral right now. One of our beloved sisters in Franklin, Tennessee went to be with the Lord this weekend. It is a time of joy and sorrow. However, it leaves me little time to say much here. Today, I provide a brief post.
I am almost always drawn to Galatians 6:7-8, when I get to this reading. We reap what we sow. If we sow to the flesh. We’ll reap corruption. If we sow to the Spirit, we’ll reap life.
Something that struck me as I read it today is, if I’m not actively sowing to the Spirit, then I am sowing to the flesh. That is, sometimes I’m not out there actively doing things that give the flesh strength in the battle. However, I’m not actively doing things that turn my life over to the Spirit either. Here is what I have found. When I think I’m just coasting, I’m not. Even if only through omission, if I’m not working on surrendering to the Spirit, I am surrendering to the flesh. The fruit of that may not come immediately. But it always comes. I fall and wonder how it happened when I used to have such strong commitment.
What does that mean for today? I can’t coast. I can’t rely on sowing to the Spirit yesterday. I have to sow to the Spirit today. I have to be active and purposeful about it.
***Question: How do you sow to the Spirit?
Keep the faith and keep reading,
