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. And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. - (Galatians 6:7-9 ESV)
I think if I was a farmer, I would automatically have a better understanding of the Bible. But the only farming I do is sorting through the produce section of Kroger for unbruised apples (but only when my wife sends me). Because of that, I have little appreciation for the labor and patience it takes to grow an excellent crop. But if we are going to understand ongoing, faithful, fruitful Christian growth, we are going to all become spiritual farmers. Take a few minutes to read through Galatians 6 to prepare your heart and mind for the passage this week.
