S. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart, Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith. Gal 6:9&10 O. It is so easy to get to the point where we wonder why we even enter into Ministry. Sometimes the cost just seems to great and the demands upon us, relentless! We are all prone to flagging and tiring at times, especially when it comes to doing good to others. This scripture reminds us that we need to carefully guard ourselves against growing weary and losing heart. It also goes on to say that we will be rewarded (reap) in due season, if we sincerely continue to do good, which may or may not be in this lifetime! We need to realize that most of what we do in ministry is never seen or applauded by people, but God see’s it all. Our attitude should be one of serving God and his people and never about our own glory. A. This is a principle that God is continually speaking to me about. I sometimes feel overwhelmed with the continual giving that comes with ministry. This scripture again reminds me of the fact that as my attitude toward what I do and why I do it changes, that it actually becomes a joy to serve. I am reminded today that what I do is only for Him and should flow out of a life of worship. I can also see that there are times I feel like I need to be affirmed or recognized for what I do. P. Father, I thank you for your word to my heart today. I pray that you would help me to have a great attitude in all that I do. Please help me to love and serve your people, without thought to my own needs or rights. Let it be enough that I do it for you alone. I thank you that you see everything that I do and that you have promised to reward at the proper time. I love you Father with all my heart.
