Galatians 6:6-10

Context

6:6 Now the one who receives instruction in the word must share all good things with the one who teaches 1  it. 6:7 Do not be deceived. God will not be made a fool. 2  For a person 3  will reap what he sows, 6:8 because the person who sows to his own flesh 4  will reap corruption 5  from the flesh, 6  but the one who sows to the Spirit will reap eternal life from the Spirit. 6:9 So we must not grow weary 7  in doing good, for in due time we will reap, if we do not give up. 8  6:10 So then, 9  whenever we have an opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who belong to the family of faith. 10
