"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers." Galatians 6:9-10
As I have gotten older, it seems as though the world around me has gotten busier and busier. It seems as though we have so much more to do and less time to do it in. Is that how it is with you? We get up in the morning and go through our routines...getting ourselves ready, getting our kids ready, rushing to school, rushing to work...and on and on and on. Many times we may feel like throwing our hands up and quitting. And many of the things that we are doing are good things. Helping our kids is a good thing. Being able to work a job is a good thing. As a matter of fact, as Christ followers we are created to do good things for God and for others. Paul says in Ephesians 2:10, "For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Paul told the Philippians in Philippians 2:13-14, "For it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. Do everything without grumbling or arguing." And then in Galatians 6:9-10, he says, "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers."
I have come to accept the fact that there will be days that I am busy. Some days will be more difficult to manage than others. However, I am going to embrace the opportunities that God gives me to do good...to do good to all people. Whether I am busy or not, I will embrace God's purpose for my life. I believe that I am His handiwork. I believe that I was created in Jesus to do good works. I believe that I will reap a harvest for God if I don't give up. Do you believe God's Word? Do you believe God's purpose for your life? God will give you the wisdom, the faith, and the strength that you need to keep on doing good!!! You just have to trust Him. I pray that you will trust Him completely today, that you will trust in His Word for your life. I pray that you will keep on doing good!!!
