Galatians 6:7 - A man reaps what he sows

NIV Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.
KJV Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
NASBDo not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.
Galatians 6:7


This agricultural principle, applied metaphorically to the moral and spiritual realm, is universally true (cf. Job 4:8; Prov. 1:31-33; Hos. 8:7; 10:12).

Did you know?

Jesus made frequent reference to the land and its products in His teaching, indicating that He and His hearers were quite familiar with such matters. Matthew 13, for example, contains four agricultural parables-the sower (vv. 1-23), the wheat and the tares (vv. 24-30, 36-43), the mustard seed (vv. 31-32), and the treasure hidden in the field (v. 44). Other New Testament writers also refer to agricultural matters. The apostle Paul, for example, spoke of reaping and sowing (Gal. 6:7-10) and the cultivation of olive trees (Rom. 11:17-24); and James referred to the farmer patiently waiting for the rain (James 5:7).
