Galatians 6:9

Galatians 6:9 – Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

         Do not give up. Do not give in. Never compromise your stand. You are a beacon of light to the world and all you do matters. Even though sometimes it seems like what you do doesn’t get noticed or it is like nobody cares. Those thoughts are not true. All the good you do is getting noticed; it does matter.
         There are a few things we need to keep in mind when we are doing God’s will. If you are walking in God’s plan, be sure that He is taking notice. He sees what you are doing and knows your heart. God will reward you at the right time. He will bring you a harvest if you do not give up. Even though it may seem like people are taking advantage of you and walking all over you, keep on doing what you are doing. To quote Matthew Barnett: “If you want to be a bridge of hope to the world, you have to expect people to walk over you.” Let them walk on you; and know that you are storing up treasures in heaven.
         Another thing that is important to remember is that if all you do is reach one person it will be worth it. Even if you work your whole life for God and all you do is bring one person into the kingdom you will have changed the world. Maybe not for everyone, but for that one person you did. All heaven rejoices when one person comes to know Jesus.
This life we live on earth is but a breath compared to the eternity we have with Jesus. If our efforts bring one more person into eternity with Christ we are not working in vain. So to repeat Paul, don’t grow weary of doing good. Keep it up and never give up. God will give you a harvest at the proper time.
