♥Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ♥ Feяmina - ENCOURAGEMENT FOR TODAY - Diane Eble
RE: ENCOURAGEMENT FOR TODAY
Don't be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit. So let's not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't give up. Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith."
To keep from getting discouraged, we need to take the long view. What we sow, we will eventually reap. Eventually. The harvest of blessing will come at the appropriate time—and God determines what that time is. So keep on doing good to everyone, especially other Christians, and never give up.
