Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
It is easy to become discouraged as Christians. Not even pastors are immune to this. Paul encourages the Galatians to not grow weary in their Christian faith however.
There are times in life that we wonder if we are making any impact as Christians. We talk to people who have no interest in coming to church. We pray and it feels as if our prayers are not answered. We must not give up however.
Paul writes that at the proper time we will reap a harvest. This requires patience. Our hard work and perseverance will pay off eventually.
We can’t truly know what impact our actions may have. Occasionally we see immediate results but more often than not, we only plant a seed with our actions. Seeds are not ready for harvest immediately but instead must be nurtured and grown into maturity.
When we are faithful to whatever task God has called us to, we will eventually find reward in it. It may not come as expected, nor may it be as quickly as we hoped for. Faithful work for God will see a harvest in the end however.
