Do good. Though we don’t have a faith based on works – our faith ought to compel us to help other people. Paul spends time at the end of his letter to the church at Galatia encouraging them to do good toward one another. He says,
“Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.”
– Galatians 6:10 NIV
It’s easy to get caught up these days in doing things for ourself. Our phones, our social media and even Netflix are all geared toward making life about what we like. It knows our presences and it caters to us. These are not bad things, but can lead us down a path of selfishness. So, be careful then to be aware of others and do good toward one another. Paul reminds us, “A man reaps what he sows.” (Gal. 6:7b)
This coming week as we head to Lake City to help homeowners – let’s take seriously this call to do good. May the good we do benefit the homeowners, proclaim the Gospel to the community and glorify the Lord!
