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 (NIV)
Have you noticed that you make time for the things that are important to you? If you really like sports, you’ll make sure that you’re free to watch the games. If you like to watch movies, you make sure you get to the theater to watch the latest release.
When something is important, you make time for it.
It’s easy to let yourself make so much time for fun things that you run out of time for the things of God.
For example, you might have so much fun hanging out with your friends that you stay out too late to get up early to read your Bible. With good intentions, you pull out your phone to read the Bible, only to realize 15 minutes later, you got sucked into watching lots of YouTube videos.
The things of God are important. In a difficult season of your life, it won’t matter if you watched all those YouTube videos. What will be important is whether you planted God’s word in your heart. God’s word is what will get you through.
So today, if you’ve let yourself become used to sowing to please yourself, make some adjustments. Determine to sow to spiritual things too!
