Galatians 6:9

Galatians 6:9 (ESV)  And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.

How easy is it to give up in doing good in this world we live in. You see people doing good and still being persecuted. Then we see people who are guilty of doing wrong going unpunished. People who work the hardest seem to receive the least. There are those who put their life at risk to protect those who hate them. So why do bother? By doing good in spite of these few examples, we are living in love. If God waited for us to all be good to love us, He never would have sent Jesus to die for us. It was because He loved us in spite of our sinful ways that Jesus came into this world. A world that rejected, ridiculed, hated, persecuted, beat Him. Spat on Him, and finally crucified Him. What was His response? It was love. He did not fight back, but He asked His Father to forgive us. How great is His love. He could have given up on us, but He did not. He loved us, and gave His life to show us this love. He does not give up on you or me. So we should not stop doing good for any reason. The world may not accept our good work. We will face rejection or neglect. It may seem like no matter how much good we do that it does not matter, but it matters to the One who sees into the depths of our hearts, and His reward is eternal. Our good work is not out of demand but out of love we have for Him. This is good. So do good without worry of what the world will do but because of what has already been done for you.

Never give up and never surrender
