“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.” ~ Galatians 6:7
You’ve probably heard the phrase that I used for the title of today’s post. And there are probably moments in your life when you’ve employed it in order to get through a situation – I know I sure have.
But as tempting as it is to live like this, remember the wisdom of today’s verse from Galatians. You can’t fool God into thinking you are one way when you are actually another. You will reap what you sow – and what you reap comes from what you sow with your heart, not from the false exterior you show the world. Too often I think it’s easy to get caught up in trying to live as certain way to impress people, when we really should be living to honor God.
And interestingly enough, living to honor God is easier, because He promises to help us do just that.
