I am a Christian family man, Lay Pastor and writer from Deep East Texas. I love life, and I enjoy working with young people. I have published two books; "A Small Mind Among Tall Trees" and "God If You Are Not Too Busy, Can You Give Me a Hand". If you want to obtain a copy drop me an e-mail or go to or barnesand . I have been a salesman, cowman and athlete in my past. I still have a strong sense of humor and am not afraid to use it.

Galatians 6:7-10

Relax, Read and Reflect
Prayer- Lord, Open my heart and open my mind and help me learn. Go-Fight-Win. Amen.
7Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 8The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature[

]will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. 9Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
Let’s look at Paul’s words logically. If we plant corn, do we expect to have cotton grow. Even those of you without an agrarian background should know this. If you live a life to receive earthly rewards, when you leave the earth,(die) you will have nothing! If you live a life for heavenly rewards, then in heaven you will receive them. That is exciting.
We , as humans, have a need to have our actions reinforced. We need praise for good things and scorn for bad. Paul is telling us not to give up doing good, even if we do not get immediate praise. Our reward will be in heaven.
Prayer- Lord, give me strength to continue to do Your work. Even if others will not praise my actions. Your praise is all I want and need. Go-Fight- Win. Amen.
