Reading Through The New Testament In 2016. Day 167. Galatians 6
My grandpa passed away 3 years ago now. At his funeral my cousin sang a song called “Worth It All” where the lyrics repeat “It’s going to be worth it, It’s going to be worth it all”.
As we reflected on my grandpa’s life — all the love he gave and all the people gathered together that were affected by his life. It was worth it.
Listen to Paul’s words in Galatians 6:
So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith
It’s easy to get tired of doing good. Sometimes it feels like evil is winning. Like the people that don’t care to do any good are happier, richer and better off.
Sometimes we do good and get nothing in return.
Sometimes we feel like we’re being emptied.
Sometimes it feels like giving up is a nice option.
It’s going to be worth it, Paul says.
Don’t give up.
One day you’ll realize that you were sowing seeds in God’s kingdom and it will yield a crop and you’ll know that every time you chose to do what was right was worth it.
It’s going to be worth it. Don’t give up.
