6 Let the one who is taught the word share all good things with the one who teaches. 7 Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. 8 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. 9 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. 10 So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
This passage gives three applications of the timeless truth that you reap what you sow.
“What goes around comes around, so..."
- Share good things profusely, v. 6.
- Live your life properly, vv. 7-8.
- Do good things persistently, vv. 9-10.
Stay on the positive side of this law rather than the negative.
