(phil. 4:8), We are by default (because we were born into a sinful, deceptive world, with sin still fighting for reign in our lives) sowing into our flesh that thinks upon things that fill us with ....strife, anger, jealousy, idolatry, division.... (Gal 5:20). So, the first place we can sow to the Spirit is by obeying the Bible and the Holy Spirit's prompting…
