Do Not Grow Weary
Paul wrote to an agrarian culture. The primary livelihood of his readers was farming. Paul writes in the book of Galatians, “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who were of the household of faith.” Galations 6:9-10
God relates the law of farming to a law of spirituality. Quick fact: Whatever someone sows, that will he also reap. When I begin to become weary, when I begin to think that all might not be worth it, I need to consider the law of the farmer and the law of the harvest. What I put into the ground it will come back. What I put into the ground will either bless me or burn me. God is not mocked. He has set up the universe, both physically and spiritually, with a simple and straightforward formula. You reap what you sow.
At any given moment, I can easily be overwhelmed and become weary. This is a journey of faith. It is to be accomplished with eyes of faith. Literally, it takes willpower to believe that the hard work that I’m doing now will result in something of worth and value in the years to come
Finish strong. Finish faithfully. Show up. Give the extra time. Add another stone to the foundation of your ministry’s future. Do not grow weary. It is worth it.
