DON'T LOSE HEART
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
Galatians 6:9-10 NIV
Many Christians have been hurt because they showed kindness to someone who didn't even bother to say thank you. We have many saints in the body of Christ who give themselves for their churches but no one seems to recognize their contribution.
We have many wives and mothers who work hard day and night to make each member of the family feel comfortable but no one seems to appreciate their efforts. We have fathers and husbands who work hard and stay late at work that they can earn more in order that their families may live decent lives. No one seems to care and sometimes they end up being treated harshly with their spouses.
I have learnt that each one of us needs a little bit of appreciation from others especially those we love. When you do good things to people and they fail to show appreciation; you don't stop and start doing the opposite. You continue doing what you are doing knowing that God sees you; and in due time you will reap a harvest if you do not give up.
This morning, I want to encourage to continue doing good things to others and learn to appreciate small things that others do for you. Life involves the process of giving and receiving. There are some people who gave out love but they did not receive anything in return. This should not stop you on loving someone else because so and so rejected you.
If you loved someone who did not love you back, don't lose heart. That seed of love that you planted in that person and did not grow. It instead grew in you that's why you were able to let that person go without hate. God will someday bring someone who will appreciate and accept your love. I want to encourage you to continue being good and doing good this year. Don't let disappointments get the better of you, do the will of God in your life and God will open let you live to reap a harvest.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Father, I thank You for your word. Help me to continue doing good to others regardless how I may be treated with them. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
