"Let him who is taught the word share in all good things..."

Text: Galatians 6:6


The apostle Paul was one of the most ardent teachers of God’s word. Sometimes support for his livelihood and his ministry was not forthcoming. He wrote to the Galatians candidly on this subject.

Let him who is taught the word share in all good
things with him who teaches. Do not be deceived,
God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows,
that he will also reap.
For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption,
but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.
