[Wisdom that is ”from above,” writes James, is “peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated” (James 3:17). This kind of wisdom truly nourishes us with its simplicity and depth. I am pleased to bring to you regular excerpts from Dr. Stewart Custer’s book of daily devotionals—Wonderful Words. Whether you’re “meeting” him for the first time or are already acquainted with his devotional writings, I trust you will enjoy the rare spiritual delights to be gleaned in these posts.]
“They that sow in tears shall reap in joy” (Psalm 126:5). “And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth” (John 4:37). “He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully” (2 Corinthians 9:6). “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not” (Galatians 6:7–9).
Golden thought: In due season we shall reap if we faint not.
