Doing good works

As a Christian, do you find yourself getting tired of doing what is good to other people? Is it sometimes hard to embrace the teaching “love your neighbor as yourself”? Do you sometimes feel that you can no longer do good things for other people because it gives you so much pain? If your answer to these questions are all ‘yes’, then don’t be discouraged. It says in Galatians 6:9, “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season, we will reap if we don’t give up”. Here are more reasons why we should not tire of doing good:

Trust God and not man

We get tired of doing what is good when we put our trust in people rather than in God. People like our parents, siblings or friends will disappoint us and will even disregard the good things we do for them. But we can always trust God. He will never fail us. It says in Psalm 146:3, “Do not put your trust in princes, in human beings, who cannot save” and in Psalm 118:8, “It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans.”

God is always good to us

God will never be tired of loving us. No matter how many sins we committed, He will always be there to accept us with all His mercy and grace. If God never tires of doing what is good for us, then we should not get tired of doing what is good for others as well. It say in Psalm 145:9, “The Lord is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made.”

Do good works for the glory of God

The reason we often get tired of doing good is because we rely on our own strength instead of God. This may also result to glorifying ourselves because of our good works instead of God. Relying on our own strength makes us feel weary and tired because our own strength is limited. But the strength that comes from God will sustain us longer and as long as we need it. It says in Colossians 3:17, “And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him”

We should continue to do good works for the glory of God. If this is our motive, our efforts will rest in God’s strength and not our own. And God will provide us with all the grace and provision that we’ll ever need. That’s why we always say, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
