Verse 5 is a wonderful motto for yourself, or a good prayer for your loved ones. This is an excellent verse to memorise.
* Loving God, thank You that Your word is right and real and true every day.
“For we hear that some among you walk in idleness, not busy at work, but busybodies.”
Paul has a hard word for us, God’s people down through the ages.
Don’t be someone who tries to get out of whatever work the Lord puts in front of us.
“As for you, brothers, do not grow weary in doing good.”
Be about the good works God has prepared for us beforehand.
While weariness is a reality we wrestle with, our attitude toward doing what God has told us (good) is to be always ready – A fire stoked and fanned and fuelled by the Holy Spirit at work in us (He is strong where we are weak).
* Father God in Heaven,
Please help us in doing good, for we do grow weary.
We grow tired.
Please be our strength, and strengthen us according to Your word – That blessed Word of Life!
