Devotional Guide, Today’s Reading – Sunday, December 29, 2019


Text:  “Don’t be misled; remember that you can’t ignore God and get away with it: a man will always reap just the kind of crop he sows!” – Galatians 6:5, Living Bible.

Comment:  Sometimes when we talk of reaping what we sow, we sometimes think of negative results.  The truth is that the results can be positive or negative.  Just as small seeds eventually produce large crops, our small everyday actions can produce far-reaching results for good or for evil.  Therefore, children of God are admonished to “Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.”  (Hoses 10:12) In his final charges to the Israelites before his death, Moses the prophet stated: “… I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life,  that both thou and thy seed may live.” (Deuteronomy 30:19,15).

The Bible says that God “spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eight person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an example unto those that after should live ungodly; And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked.  (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds) – 2 Peter 2:5-8.
