Weary in Doing Good


Do you ever get tired? I really don’t think getting tired is an option. If you do work, you get tired. Your body gets tired. Your brain gets tired. But what about your soul? Does your soul ever get tired? Frankly I’ve been frustrated that my soul keeps wanting to do on when everything else says stop.

I think this is the issue that Paul is addressing here. We do tend to spend a lot of time trying to do good, and sometimes it doesn’t seem like we are getting anywhere. It is possible go weary your soul in trying to right wrongs and fix people. But Paul’s encouragement to us is clear. A harvest is coming. It will come when it is time. Don’t give up planting those seeds. Don’t give up investing in people. Some people need more fertilizer than others.

A reminder on this Monday that our work for the Lord will always bear a return. Even if your job seems hopeless and and pointless, God has plans for you where you are, plans to prosper His word and your witness.

Dear Lord, help me to see today Your purposes in the mundanity that is Monday. Help me to see Your purposes in all things, that You may be glorified. Help me Jesus this day, Amen. Thank you Jesus.
