Sow Good... Reap Blessing
As we talked about in last week's devotional, God wants to bless your life, and the richer, more frequent
blessings come to those who do a particular thing. We find that thing in
Galatians 6:9-10, And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have
opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.
The seasons of blessing come due more often to those who consistently sow, to those who seize opportunities
that are afforded them to do good. Notice again in verse 9, let us not grow weary while doing good. Verse 10 says, therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to
This same truth is reinforced by verse 7, which states, Do not be deceived, God is
not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. If we sow good, we will reap good. A season of blessing will come.
What many Christians tend to do is stand before a field in which they planted no seed, and pray, "God, give
me a miracle harvest."
Now, God is God, and He certainly can do things out of the ordinary. But He also works according to laws and
principles that He has set into motion. One of those laws is the law of sowing and reaping.
Whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap. Therefore, do not grow weary while doing good. In due season,
you will reap, if you do not faint. When you have opportunity, do good. Get some seed in the ground. Because the richer and more frequent blessings come to those who sow good.

For Your Information
I have thoroughly enjoyed going through our series on the iLife, so I decided to continue it through most of November. Remember that the iLife is the life
that is being lived out intentionally. This last Sunday we talked about iLove, which is very important in our walk with God, to intentionally love the Lord, and those
around us. It will help us grow in our relationship and fellowship with the Lord. That message is on the church website if you missed it, or you can click
here. Next week we will be delving into iForgive. Then the next
two weeks we will look at iGive and iThank. Please make every effort to be here, for it can change your life if you put into practice
