SOWING AND REAPING

Matthew 6:1-34

But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal (6:20).

Empty-Handed

A wealthy man named John had given his life to the world and not to God. In his last illness he became obsessed with his hands. His wife called his business partner Jim, asking him to come and talk to him. “Maybe you can help him, Jim,” she said, “he is obsessed with his hands.” So Jim came to see his old friend John, whom he had known and loved through the years. As they visited, Jim finally said, “John, there is nothing wrong with your hands.” But John looked at him and said, “Jim, look! My God, Jim, they are so empty! They are so empty!”

He that sows for worldly gain shall reap emptiness, corruption, decay, and loss. Death to the lost man becomes a mockery, a ghastly apparition. “For he that soweth to the flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption, but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting” (Gal. 6:8).
