GOD'S LAW OF SOWING AND REAPING
Jesse M. Hendley
In Galatians 5:7 we read, "Be not deceived: God is not
mocked. Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also
"Turn Up The Nose"
Don't let anybody deceive you: GOD IS NOT MOCKED. The
word mocked is from the Greek word mukteridzo and it
comes from mukter meaning "nose." It means literally,
"to turn up the nose at someone in disdain." But God
says He is not mocked. Nobody ever turns up the nose
at God! And, "whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he

our harvest will be one we really want.

Friends, sometimes I see atheistic, mocking
unbelievers deriding the Bible, discounting the Bible,
not believing the Bible as God's Word. They do not
realize that just about every blessing they enjoy came
to them because of the Word of God and the teachings
of the Lord Jesus and spirituality through Christ.
People generally don't realize that.
