Just a quick post to share a special blessing with you today. I recently listened to an audio recording of Sowing and Reaping by D. L. Moody and, quite frankly, it was one of the most compelling, impactful books I’ve “read” in awhile. It is a rich exposition of Galatians 6:7-8 which summarizes one of the most significant principles in all of Scripture: the principle of sowing and reaping. (And it’s not talking about money! 😉 ) It is superbly read by a LibriVox volunteer, Jeremy Sherwood, and is offered free of charge and in the public domain through librivox.org.
Although I wasn’t thinking of the connection at the time I began listening, the focus on “sowing and reaping” tied in so well with the second half of the previous post where we looked at “hate” being the “Thorn/Seed” (according to how it is depicted in the ancient Hebrew language.) and also how we considered that, “The battle of the ages is, in reality, a ‘seed’ battle.” So, in light of those realities/meditations, I felt this would be a fitting interim post in the midst of this present series on the “love”-“hate” relationship.”
As I’ve done with other classic Christian books offered by Librivox, I’ve added a “Resource” page for Sowing and Reaping to the FREE AUDIOBOOKS section here on the blog. This includes all the information and play/download links found on the LibriVox website for this book as well as a “Continuous Play” option that I’ve added for your convenience. Please click here to access:
I’ve also included below the first chapter for you to have a “first taste” of this book right on this post. (This chapter includes a section concerning the “sowing and reaping” principle as it relates to nations, that seems especially poignant at this time! I encourage you to listen!)
For those who wish to read or reference the text online, you may find that here: https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/30768
May you be blessed, challenged, and enriched by this powerfully written and quality-produced resource!
