“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” Galatians 6:9
Do you ever get tired of doing those good deeds like cleaning the church, or picking up “Grandma Jones” and carrying her to church? Do you ever get tired and weary of doing your good deeds? I think we all do once in a while, but the Bible tells us not to give up. I remember a trip to the mountains of Covant years ago… one particular trip seemed rougher than it ever had! We had traveled by “four-wheel drive,” and then got out and walked. Some of our mules had died, so we had to walk for a “long way.” As we reached the top of the mountain, I turned to our Haitian guide and said, “I thought you said it ‘wasn’t too far’ and that it ‘was just over the mountain?’” Well, he said, “it’s over those mountains!” He pointed to two more mountains in the distance. I thought, “God, why are you sending us all the way out here, climbing over these mountains in the heat of the sun?” I didn’t think we could make it, but we did. We were going there to do a “Mobile Medical Clinic.”
As we reached one of the mountains, we looked up and, in the distance, there were hundreds and hundreds of children from our Love A Child School standing on the mountain ledge. There were so many children, little children, with sweaty faces standing in the sun waiting to greet us and carry our loads! So why was I complaining? I had nothing to complain about! We reached there amid the hugs and the tears and began our Mobile Medical Clinic. We treated so many people and saved lives! The trip back home “seemed to be nothing,” because now we realized why God had sent us.
Nothing goes unseen by God! He misses “nothing.” He sees every small act of kindness. So “let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” Galatians 6:9
“Keep on keeping on!” Sherry
