Keep Trying

Description

So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.

Galatians 6:9-10

So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith.

Sometimes being nice to people gets old…especially if they don’t return the favor. The Apostle Paul encourages us not to give up, despite how frustrating that can be, because in the end God will see to it that we “reap a harvest of blessing.” That’s some really good news, isn't it?

A few devotionals ago we looked at the Fruit of the Spirit…one of which was perseverance or long-suffering. This is a really important aspect of Christian living in general, but especially among the family of faith. Doing good for a Christian is not a tit-for-tat journey, but a way of life…regardless of what others choose to do with our good works.  

Paul says, “Keep up the good work!”

God says, “It will be worth it!”

We say, “I believe you and I will!”

APPLICATION: Figure out a “good work” that you can go do for one another right now…and then do it! Once you are done, pray and ask God to help you do that consistently whenever and wherever and for whomever you can!
