And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Galatians 6:9
One of my favorite gospel songs starts with these words, “Truth is, I’m tired. . .” Can you relate? I know I can. There are times in all of our lives that we just feel exhausted, lethargic, and just plain ol’ worn out.
Paul, however, admonished the Galatian church not to grow weary while doing good. This may seem like unrealistic advice; we all get tired sometimes right? What Paul was saying here is never get tired of doing what is good and righteous before the Lord. Sometimes we are tempted to get frustrated, feel hopeless, or even quit doing the right thing. Most often, this is because we don’t see the results right away. It’s like we try and try and still find ourselves in the same situation. Take note of the latter part of this verse, “for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” If you do not lose heart, there will be harvest season. I won’t speak presumptuously and try to tell you when that time will be, but I will say this, in God’s perfect timing, you will reap a harvest of blessings! So don’t lose heart while doing those good and godly things. Keep doing what you’ve been called to do. You are sowing into your harvest. And when your harvest season comes, you will have even more reasons to rejoice!
