Don’t Grow Weary

Happy Wednesday! 🙂

Today, I just want to encourage you. As you face the evil in the world and stand firm in Christ’s love, as you seek to use all your spiritual buffalo, as you prayerfully attempt to make a difference in the world one person at a time . . . remember this exhortation from the Apostle Paul. I’ve put it down here in several versions to help us meditate on the words.

Galatians 6:9 (New King James Version)
And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

(New International Version)
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

(New Living Translation)
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.

(Amplified Bible)
And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint.

(The Message, verses 9 & 10)
So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith.

So, go . . . as Mother Teresa said, we can do small acts with great love. Go do small acts with great love, and don’t grow weary. God sees your heart of compassion, your desire to do something, your willingness to make an impact for Him. At the right time, you will reap good things.
