Let Us Not Become Weary!

7Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 8The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. 9Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
Galatians 6:7-10

I'm meditating on these verses today. I have been tempted to give up, to give in to sin, to indulge myself instead of pressing on, to justify my nastiness rather than choose to do good.

And the Spirit brings these verses to mind.

How about you today?

May God strengthen us to persevere in doing good for His sake. May we remember Jesus who suffered unto death for our sakes. May the Spirit remind us of God's loving-kindness and His awesome holiness. And may we, in due time, see the harvest He promises as we persevere in faith.
