For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.
A successful building contractor called in one of his employees, a skilled carpenter, and told him that he was putting him in charge of the next house the company was building.
He instructed the carpenter to order all of the materials and oversee the entire process from the ground to up.
The carpenter excitedly accepted his assignment. It was his first opportunity to actually oversee an entire building project. He studied the blueprints and checked every measurement.
Then he thought, “If I am really in charge, why can't I cut a few corners, use less expensive materials, and put the extra money in my pocket?
Who would know the difference? After we paint the place, no one would be able to tell.”
The carpenter set about with his scheme. He used second-grade wood and ordered inexpensive iron rods for the foundation.
He put in cheap wiring. He cut every corner he possibly could, but reported the use of higher-quality building materials.
When the home was completed, he asked his boss to come and see it. His boss looked at it and said, “This is incredible. You did a fantastic job. You have been such a good and faithful worker and the Board has decided to give you this house as your end of service benefit.”
We will reap what we sow. Just as we can't plant weeds and reap flowers, we can't sin and reap righteousness.
There are reactions to our actions. Think about it: every day, we are either sowing to the Spirit or we are sowing to the flesh. What kind of seeds will you sow today?
