“get” it

Wednesday July 10th, Galatians 6: 7-8 Don't be misled: No one makes a fool of God. What a person plants, he will harvest. The person who plants selfishness, ignoring the needs of others—ignoring God!—harvests a crop of weeds. All he'll have to show for his life is weeds! But the one who plants in response to God, letting God's Spirit do the growth work in him, harvests a crop of real life, eternal life.  That real life, what we call eternal life is something that starts now and is brought to perfection in the life to come.  Most of us spend our lives living and lunging in lots of directions other than the one God has for us.  Sooner or later we will all “get” it, but for most, we “get” it after most of this life is over.  That is where grace comes in.  As my children get older and off on their adult life, getting married, having kids etc., it is fun to watch them start to “get” it.  Sure would be nice if God could watch more of us “getting” it.  Most of us however spend too much of our lives in that adolescence “it is all about me” phase.  God is patient and kind, but think of what you are missing.
