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. – Galatians 6:8
This verse talks about sowing to our flesh. That can really mean a lot of different things. Simply put, sowing to the flesh is living out from under the control of the Spirit of God. It’s not allowing God to have control and be number one in your life. There are a lot of different ways this could look. For example, you could be in total disobedience to God, or it could just simply be that you’re not pursuing the things of God. A lot of the time, it’s easy to get distracted by social media, TV shows, or hanging out with friends. We don’t realize that when we put these things first, we’re really not pursuing the things of God. Today’s Bible verse tells us that if we sow to these things in our life we will reap destruction. Challenge yourself today to not sow to please your flesh. Choose instead to do things that are sowing to the Spirit. Choose to follow after God wholeheartedly, and see the awesome things He does in your life!
