“Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. Gal 6:7-9 ESV
Today at church we talked about this verse. We talked about other stuff too, but this was what resonated with me.
Specifically, verse 9. Don’t grow weary of doing good, because in the end, you will reap what you have sown… if you don’t give up.
That last bit there, that’s ticklish. We reap the good if we don’t give up. Not just if we sow for a while and then go on with something else. If we don’t give up.
Perseverance is huge when you are chasing your dream. God gives you vision. God has a good task ahead of you. The likelihood is high that you will not see all of your effort come to fruition immediately.
But, if you don’t give up, you will reap what you have sown.
