Galatians 6

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.


  • Verse 7 “Do not be deceived”
    • Just because it does not seem like justice is done don’t be fooled.
  • “God cannot be mocked”
    • Ignoring God’s expectations, God’s will is mocking His authority
  • “A man reaps what he sows”
    • How you spend your time counts for you or against you. There are two ways this might come out.
      • An immediate effect – when we don’t seek God’s direction, or when we seek God’s direction and then don’t do His will we immediately damage our relationship with God and damage our own character.
      • A delayed effect – our actions and attitudes have ripple effects with damaging results that are seen over time.
