Galatians 6:6-8 (NET)
Now the one who receives instruction in the word must share all good things with the one who teaches it.
Do not be deceived. God will not be made a fool. For a person will reap what he sows,
because the person who sows to his own flesh will reap corruption from the flesh, but the one who sows to the Spirit will reap eternal life from the Spirit.
After Linda observed that the reason she received great financial open doors that season of her life was because she gave the most to the minister who had instructed her in the word of God the most, she started giving to that minister again. But this time, she did not receive any financial breakthrough. She became confused because she expected her doors to open but they did not.
Even though the reason she received the kind of breakthrough she received at first was because she gave to that minister, her motive for giving the second time was now polluted. This time she was sowing to the flesh and that was why she did not receive anything.
The first time she gave to that minister, it was because she sincerely appreciated his ministry and wanted to support it. But this second time, she gave because she wanted to do a transaction with God that would fetch her financial breakthrough. The first time she sowed, she sowed to the spirit because she gave in the spirit to God and for His servant, this second time the real reason she gave was because she wanted a return. There was no spiritual seed of honor or love for God’s kingdom, there was only the fleshly seed of greed and self-aggrandizement.
Go into today remembering that God is not mocked. Those who sow to themselves(the flesh) under the disguise of giving to God will reap nothing but corruption. But those who sow to the spirit by letting their motivation for giving be honor to God and His servants, love for Godâ€™s kingdom, and love for people, will reap a bountiful harvest.
Prayer: Lord please help me sow to the Spirit and no more to the flesh. Amen.
