Wesley's Notes for Galatians 6:7


6:7 God is not mocked - Although they attempt to mock him, who think to reap otherwise than they sow.


People's Bible Notes for Galatians 6:7


Ga 6:7 Be not deceived. Men often are. God is not mocked. They do fancy that God may be mocked. The immutable law of the spiritual kingdom shows that he is not. Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. A law not only of the vegetable world, but of our bodies and spirits. Habit is only an illustration of this law. The delirium tremens on the one hand, and the purity of the aged saint on the other are due to the action of this law.

Discussion for Galatians 6:7

  • Brianna for verse 7
    When I read this I think of the applications where this could be true in our lives. For example - How can a person mock God? Whether a proclaimed christian or not, if we are not obeying God then we will reap what we sow, or be held accountable for those actions. If I am christian, but willing participating in unwholesome acts, can I really expect God 's blessings? OR If I am a person who does not believe in God, can I expect to be shown mercy on the day of his great anger? Very interesting things to meditate on during personal study time of the Bible.
  • What i think about the book of gal 6 7 , it was applicable to everybody living under the planet, weather muslin ,Christians, pegan, Hindus ,budapest etc.what god was tryiny to say was that when u wake up in the morning just think about how u gonna help somebody that day or what good u gonna do to someone becouse there will be aconseqencies for our action 30 19 . Always remember there was a price to pay for every thing u did, good or evil.
  • Lady Gray for verse 7
    It time to stop playing church, we have our season, God wants us to be accountable for our season, what seeds have you sowed?
  • I believe in god 's word and his word is clear, whatever a man sow that shall he also reap.
  • I think that the world should take God at his word. Men r trying to play God.But there is One God that knows all. America don 't fear God anymore,America is allowing any everything.God sees all hears knows all,one day God is going to crack the sky rather the world believe it or not.He us coming.To soon for some not soon enough for others.Thank you.
  • God is not a toy. He is not something to play with. Too many people are playing church and pretending. But, there is a price to pay for not being real with God and truly finding His Son Jesus and repenting of sin and returning back to God.
