Don't Grow Weary
9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
There is often a time when believers wonder if the good that they have done was worth the effort they exhausted. The promise found in Galatians 6:9 serves as a reminder that we are to press our way through such seasons of uncertainty and continue the practice of doing good. Doing good can look different according to the context you live in, but at its core, doing good is a desire to adhere to the leading of the Holy Spirt as we interact with God’s creation. For some, it could mean forgiving someone who intentionally did you wrong. For another it could mean being selfless and helping someone who is in need. It could also mean contributing to your local church or a nonprofit to help ensure that the necessary resources for ministry are available.
The list of opportunities to do good is quite extensive, but if you continue to adhere to it, you will reap a harvest of blessings in return. Do not grow weary because there is much at stake for those you will help as well as yourself.
In Christ Alone,
Pastor Marcus D. Floyd, M.A., M.Div.
