Don’t Give Up

Rising Joy by Vicki Matheny

So we must not grow weary in doing good, for in due time we will reap, if we do not give up. Galatians 6.9

Everyone grows weary, perhaps from working, from cooking, or from trying to do the right thing. Paul told the Galatians to not grow weary in doing good.

Perhaps Paul was thinking about Jesus when he wrote this. Matthew 21.15 refers to the wonderful things that Jesus did. Jesus taught the people, fed them, and healed them. He went about doing good. He continued to do good even when the religious leaders of the day tried to trap him in what he said or what he did.

Jesus is our example. Doing good is a part of the life of the disciple. Just as Jesus received his reward for his life here, the disciple who does not give up, but continues to do good, will reap the results. Those results might be seen here on earth or in the future in eternity. Never give up!
