God Will Not Be Mocked

Don’t be deceived. God will not be mocked, for whatever a man sow, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption. But he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. -Galatians 6:7-8.

So, what constitutes mocking God:

There are two-main ways we mock God. Surprisingly, this can happen whether you are sowing to the sinful nature or the Spirit.

1. Believing You Will Get Away With It

This applies if you are sowing to the sinful nature. Eventually, you will reap the reward of your ways. Thinking or believing you will escape, get away with it, or not face consequences sneers or looks at God justice with contempt. When you think or feel this way you act actually mocking God.

2. Believing God Will Not Reward You

This applies when you are sowing to the Spirit. We often don’t think of mocking in regards to righteousness but it can happen. If you are sowing to the Spirit but believe that God will not reward you for your right living, you are in essence mocking God.

How Can We Be Sure We Don’t Do It

The best way to know that you are not mocking God is to simply take Him at His word. You should take to heart what God said knowing He will do it. Your confidence and trust in His word will keep you from treating what God has said with contempt.

What’s The Best Course Of Action; I think Paul Said It Best,

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have the opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

Galatians 6:9-10
