“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”
will of the flesh reap corruption,
The flesh produces “corruption.” “Corruption” means disintegration, deterioration, dissolution. It is not permanent but short-lived and transient. There is no eternal reward when we operate in the flesh.
It is spiritually nearsighted to live in the flesh.
Sin will always cause us to deteriorate spiritually. A life lived for time will not produce anything for eternity. There is a great difference between a temporally oriented life and an eternally oriented life. A temporally oriented life is spiritual shortsightedness.
