Galatians 6:7-9New International Version (NIV)

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 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. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Reaping As We Sow
by Michael Romani

With grace that is always changeless
The truth of God is the truth of sameness
As consistent in the message that He gives
As we strive to be in how it is that we live

Whether deliberate or not, our every thought
Chosen or not, by accident or purposefully sought
Shapes us into what it is that we will become
The parts of our parts are the whole of our very sum

We know that we're always reaping what we sow
Walking our walks, talking our talk as we grow
Striving to remove the negative by God's purpose
Focusing on the good and noble is what we propose

Putting aside procrastination to reach our destination
As doers of the word not just listening with fascination
But taking the steps to be who we are meant to be
The living embodiment of our Father's blessed divinity

We have only so much control but that which we do
We should keep these responsibilities in our view
Thinking right, talking right and building others up
This is how we best reach that Holy winner's cup

This then is the juncture of living to do or to die
Having the tools made ready for us we know why
We move forward leaving the past far behind
Keeping our eyes on the prize and with goal line in mind

Once we've confessed our sins and repented to conform
We must lock in step into our new kind of living form
Putting our guilt into the past knowing it has no residency
Forgetting it not but doing what it is we ought as a blessing

Hanging in and moving on to put our talents into steady play
Living between the sowing and reaping keeping on it every day
And when we fail and hit life's brick walls, we must recall
That we know that we must keep pushing on through it all

God is so good in how he reaches out to help us from above
Teaching us to love and help each other, loving one another
We should all join in a prayer of togetherness becoming as one
Encouraging each other as we know this has only just begun
