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.
As believers it ought to bring us great comfort that our Savior knows our hearts. The Christian life is full of ups and downs, and during the down times it becomes increasingly easy to weary in doing good. In a “what have you done for me lately” society, we tend to look at our Christian life the same. If we cannot see that doing what is right is paying off, we are tempted to give up. Truth is now judged by experience, rather than something greater. Therefore, if our experience is not what we want it to be we grow tired, start to complain, and decide doing good is not worthwhile. Take heart, we are given the promise that we will not be disappointed with doing good. If we do not give up, if we persevere, God will reward us. Have you grown tired of doing what is right? Does it feel like doing what is right does not pay off? Are you growing concerned that adhering closely to God’s way is not worth it? DON’T GIVE UP! For at the proper time you will reap a harvest. We are not living for the here and now, but for God. Your Savior God knows there will be times where it is difficult and you feel like it is not worth it, and so He gives us this verse of encouragement and gentle reminder. Do not grow tired, weary of doing good.
