This was the outline I used in our small group study, with eight non-Christian visitors present.
The Inexorable Principle of Sowing and Reaping
- Invest your money where it counts (6).
- You might fool parents or authorities, but never God (7a).
- Learn what the word “inexorable” means. That’s what the divine law of planting and reaping is (7).
- Patience! The reward comes later (8-9).
- Now is the time to plant: open your eyes to the opportunities to do good today (10).
