You may have wondered many a times why you need to do what you do-doing good. Sometimes, things may seem challenging-as a full time working parent, single parent, businessperson or a pastor. But remember, no good that we do is in vain.
“So we must not grow weary in doing good, for in due time we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, whenever we have an opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who belong to the family of faith.” Galatians 6:9,10
We need to do good in everything we do, without giving up. Be it your prayer life, whether you need breakthrough or not, will you still continue to seek Him?
Be it at your work place, will you give your best and work like you work unto the Lord, whether you boss appreciates you or not?
Be it your parents, your siblings, friends or spouse, would you continue honouring and showing mercy to them whether they deserve it or not?
Be it serving at a church or being in the ministry, would you still continue to do so whether you are acknowledged or even seen by anyone?
We Christians get discouraged the most when we want to hurry things up, instead of waiting on God’s timing. We hurry to make decisions based on what we think is the best time rather than waiting upon God.
Many jump into relationships, get married, or make hasty decisions. But God is never too late. His timing is the best and He will never disappoint, if only we could trust His plans.
The fact is that we can never do good continuously or love unconditionally without God. If we do anything without the help of Jesus, after a while we would start to get weary. The more we receive from above, the more we are able to give.
Every opportunity God gives to show some care, invite someone home who is in need, or give someone something, make good use of it because the Bible says, “And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’-
(Matthew 25:38-40 ESV)
Every deed we do is seen and will be rewarded in due time. It can be through different ways. But don’t stop whether you don’t see the results. If we can do it unto the Lord He will reward us beyond our measures.
Start with people within your faith. It is important that continue to show love, grace, mercy and be good to those in the church. Sadly many christians fight more with each other in the church. I pray the Lord will help us to do what he desires to do in our lives.
1 Corinthians 13:13, “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
Have you had moments of despair where you have become weary. Would love to hear your thoughts on this post.
