Don’t Give Up!

It is very easy to get tired of doing good especially when the good we are doing is not appreciated. However, in this verse we see a powerful Biblical reality: If we pursue doing good for the sake of love, regardless of what happens, we will indeed reap a harvest.


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

It is very easy to get tired of doing good especially when the good we are doing is not appreciated. However, in this verse we see a powerful Biblical reality: If we pursue doing good for the sake of love, regardless of what happens, we will indeed reap a harvest. It will not be a waste of time. The challenge for us as Christians is not to give up. It seems like everywhere we look there are voices yelling at us to give up: Impossible circumstances, sickness, personal failures, and many other voices come against our faith. Many of us give up just before the breakthrough. The message of this verse and the encouragement for you today is it is really up to us; if we do not give up, the harvest is coming and God will indeed get the glory.
