Galatians 6:9 – “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
Do you ever get tired? I mean bone weary tired. The kind of tired that the thought of facing another day makes you want to cry? I have been that tired and am often that tired. I don’t see improvements in the things that I toil after. The laundry never stops. The house never stays clean. Someone new is always sick and in need of my help. The pool is always in need of a cleaning. My car is never clean – inside or out. The lawn keeps growing. The list can (and does) go on and on.
But one thing, we never need be tired of doing good. Doing good is doing the things we know we ought to do. Things that glorify God and show others Him at work in our life. Good things – like smiling at people, calling someone to encourage them, sending an email that lets another know that you love them, holding the door open for someone, being patient while your child gets ready – all by them self. Now I know that the good that Paul is writing about here stretches way beyond this short list. But, it is a start.
God has promised that if we keep on keeping on that He will bless us. That, dear princess, is a promise worth holding onto.
So today, do something that shows God’s love to someone else. Make it big or make it small, whatever is necessary. But be sure to tell them through words and/or actions that Jesus was sent to die for them and that He rose again on the third day to ensure that they could spend eternity with Him. He loves them (and He loves you) and He wants them (and you) with Him for always.
