Don’t Give Up, It Matters

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” 
Undoubtedly life is full of ups and downs. At times, things go our way, and other times life's events seem to go completely off the rails. There are also those moments and events where we push to do good, but at times it feels as if it doesn’t even matter.

We may find ourselves asking the question, “Why should I continually strive to do good?” I mean, after all, there are people all around who are not doing good, or what is right, and they seem to excel. It seems like things continue to work out for them.
Does it really matter if I do good? Does it really matter if I continue to fight the good fight and not grow weary?

YES! Yes, it does.

We never know who may be watching us to see how we handle certain unfavorable events and situations.
Over the past few weeks, I have been reminded that Galatians 6:9 is so true.

If we, as followers of Jesus, are not willing to persevere and do good, how can we expect non-believers to do good? We have the goodness that only God can give us, and that is why we persevere.
There are going to be situations that we find ourselves in that are yet another opportunity to display to the world that our treasure does not lie on this old earth, but in heaven with the one who gives us the strength to not grow weary in doing good.
I firmly believe that God places each of us in a specific place, for a specific purpose, at a specific time. Therefore, that specific time, as good, or as difficult as it may seem, is an awesome opportunity to lead the way in doing good. And maybe, just maybe, someone would be encouraged by our perseverance and begin to see the good is not us, but it is The Good Good Father who loves us and provides for us and leads us through anything that life may throw at us.
