Do Not Be Weary!

Oh - dear....have you ever tried to help someone and felt the prickles of resistance?   I'm sure we all have.   Our gesture of assistance may be met by unexpected rejection or even anger.  The recipient may not understand our heart or intentions, especially when we want to share the Gospel.

Just like with children, they do not understand all the lectures or rules we set, and they may even rebel...but we continue enforcing and explaining because we love them.

It is the same when we share the Good News of Jesus. Unbelievers may revile us (Matthew 5:11) because they do not understand...but they may one day.  When we donate to various ministries, missions and causes we may never know the effect our money had, until we are heaven side - so we must continue.  When we pray for someone, we may not see the effects of that prayer, but let us never stop.

The entire scripture states, "Let us not be weary in well doing, for in due season we shall reap if we faint not.  As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men especially unto them who are of the household of faith."  (Galatians 6:9-10)

Dear friends, whatever you are doing for the Lord, if it is teaching a Sunday School class, being a prayer warrior, working in ministry, writing a blog, or being the best Christian wife, husband, parent or person you can be, don't be discouraged!   You ARE making a difference - Keep going on for the Lord!!

May you be encouraged today!
