Are You Weary?
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. ~Galatians 6:9
I have talked with many nonprofit and ministry leaders who are tired—the demands of leading an organization are pressing in and you want to give up. You think, “it would be so much easier if I just gave up.”
“Why don’t I take the easy way out?”
But, the message we receive from Paul is one to not grow weary. He says we will reap a harvest if we just hang on and do not give up. In other words, we will see the benefit of our work if we just keep doing the things we need to be doing.
We need to be careful, to watch when we are becoming weary. Weariness happens when we become excessively tired as a result of excessive exertion. The message here is clear, we should not allow that feeling of being so tired we can’t function overtake us as we are doing those things we are called to do.
