The concept of sowing and reaping is easily understood in the natural world of agriculture, but the Apostle Paul used the illustration with regard to spiritual life as well. Within every action, we have been given a choice to sow either to our flesh or to the Spirit. Alistair Begg examines this straightforward principle and how it applies to the life of every person, particularly in the realm of holiness.
7Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. 8For 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. 9And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. 10So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
