Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.

3. Humility of Heart reaps the Mercy of God -- 1 Kings 21:25-29

And receives mercy (21:28-29)


Questions to Consider
Are you presently sowing to please your sinful nature?
What fruit have you reaped?

Are you presently sowing to please the Spirit?
What fruit have you reaped?


Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
