Let us not grow weary in well-doing, for in due time we will reap a harvest, if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to the family of faith. Galatians 6:9-10
I love this verse!
I also love the way the Passion Bible says it; And don’t allow yourself to be weary or disheartened in planting good seeds, for the season of reaping the wonderful harvest you’ve planted is coming! Take advantage of every opportunity to be a blessing to others, especially to our brothers and sisters in the family of faith!
Galatians 6 is talking about a relentless person.
Relentless is defined as; showing or promising no abatement of intensity, strength, or pace.
This scripture reminds me of a story about my granddaughter, Brailee, and dandelions.
One day, she jumped into the vehicle with a handful of dandelions. The little seeds were flying everywhere. Quickly, she began handing them out to each of us. She knew it was her Mom’s favorite thing.
As they were flying all around, Breanne remarked, “dandelions are relentless.”
It was just a comment, but it exploded in my spirit.
For days I thought about the relentlessness of a dandelion.
Dandelions are funny things.
You can trample on them. You can cut them down. A storm can blow through and wipe them out. But nothing stops them. They just pop right back up. Not only that, but they scatter seeds as they go.
You can pick them up and blow on them, which is Brailee’s favorite thing. But what happens then? They simply scatter and plant new dandelion seed as they go through the air.
Nothing can hinder them from spreading their seeds all around. And nothing can stop them from multiplying.
This is the person Galatians 6 is speaking of. A person who, no matter what tries to hinder them, continues to sow.
This is how we must be, as Christians. As Believers. We must be relentless.
We must continue to believe and declare God’s word no matter what we see with our eyes or hear with our ears. We must be fully persuaded that His first word is His final word and refuse to move off that.
We must be a person who, amid a financial crisis, will continue to sow seed. Will continue to tithe and obey God’s word. A person who, when the storms of life hit, allows their seed to continue to scatter.
That, my friend, is a relentless person.
Don’t allow hinderances to stop you from obeying God. Don’t allow storms of life to cause you to stop trusting God. We have a promise from God. What we sow, we will reap. If we need increase, yet refuse to sow, we will not reap financial increase.
Galatians 6:8 says; A man’s harvest in life will depend entirely on what he sows.
It doesn’t get any clearer than that. Today, decide what you want to reap, and sow accordingly.
This truth is not only about money. It’s about life. If you want joy, sow joy. If you want love, sow love. If you need help, sow help. If you need peace, sow peace. If you need a house, pay someone’s house payment. If you need debt freedom, help someone pay a debt. A man’s harvest in life will depend entirely on what he sows. Sow accordingly.
Like the dandelion, may we all become relentless in sowing good things! As we journey through life, may our seeds of goodness, kindness, patience, and love scatter everywhere we place our feet.
Meditate on this:
The one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. Galatians 6:8
