A Daily Devotion for Wednesday, June 23


Galatians 4:1-7, 6:7-10


6:7-10

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

The message is pretty clear here this morning. To me, it is a message of encouragement and a reminder there is a purpose behind all of our efforts. Our efforts to do good and to be loving and patient and generous all will leave behind that “fragrance of Christ” as long as our hearts are in the right place. We must not give up or give in to the temptation to be petty or judgmental. Our job is to be kind.

Holy One, I ask you to help keep me strong, because sometimes I make the wrong choice, for the wrong reason. Help me to see my choice before I act. Amen

Galatians 6:7-10 In the Bible we learn the principle of sowing and reaping. Beginning in Genesis, God teaches us that as long as the earth remains, there will be seed time and harvest time. We understand how to sow seeds and wait for the harvest. We can see a tomato seed with our eyes and understand the process of planning and expecting a harvest of tomatoes. Let’s move away from the garden for a moment and take about attitudes, thoughts and words. They are also seeds that we sow. We can not see attitudes or thoughts or words, but they are the seeds that operate in our minds and spirit. They will also built a harvest of what was sow…

Galatians 6:7 Don’t be misled – you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest or to plant. Paul is not talking about dirt, soil, and seed but how we behave as we live our lives. I can remember as a child asking my mother why so many people did awful things and nothing happened to them. They even seemed to prosper. She replied that in the end you reap what you sow. God will get them. I thought at the time she meant something like strike them down. But I learned, like the Galatians, God‘s justice will prevail against them. At transformers last evening we discussed the kindness movement. If you can be anything be kind. Imagine if everyone…

Galatians 4: 1-7, 6: 7-10


4: 7 So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.


I never thought of myself as an orphan, but until God adopted me that’s what I was. I am also an heir to the kingdom of God. What a wonderful gift. Jesus paid a great price for my adoption, a part He willingly accepted. What a wonderful gift God gave us. Through the Holy Spirit we are guided in this life on earth, so that we may have everlasting life with God in heaven.


Dearest Lord, thank you for adopting me into your family. This wonderful gift that you bestowed…

Galatians 4:4a - “But when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law,”


During Holy Communion we recite the mystery of faith: “Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again.“ It is not for us to know, but I can’t help but wonder what constituted the “fullness of time“ that prompted God to send the Son the first time, and what will be the trigger for His return. We look back in time, often believing our better days are behind us, but in many ways we are living our best lives now and even better things are on the horizon. I may not be here when Christ returns,…
