“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, it we faint not.”
Galatians 6:9 (KJV)
Weary? Oh, yes – that’s me sometimes.
I can become weary for different reasons: lack of sleep, boredom, or tired of doing, to name a few.
The “tired of doing” is the one Galatians 6:9 addresses. We are instructed to not become weary in well doing.
I can get so busy doing, doing, doing that I burn out. Tired with a capital “T”. When I reach this point, it’s time for me to stop and re-evaluate why I’m feeling the way I am. Sometimes rest is all that is needed to recharge my focus and my heart. But sometimes it’s more than that. Sometimes I need to see what it is I’m spending my time doing. Is it on meaningless things, or is it in well-meaning things? When I redirect my “doing” to those things that are good for the soul and for others, I am energized once again to keep on keeping on.
An act of kindness is one of the best ways to refresh our weary hearts. One act of kindness in someone’s life can make a beautiful difference in their day. Let us not get tired in this type of well doing.
Faint not, my friend. Our well doing is producing a harvest of blessing — even if we can’t see it now, it’s coming — in due season.
With my whole heart,
