Scripture Reading: Galatians 6:9

"And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."

Have you been working in the Kingdom of God all or most of your life, yet you see no results for all your labor and hard work? Do you sometimes want to give up, to throw in the towel and to say, "I surrender. It's not worth it. It's such a waste!"?

Be assured that you are not alone in your thinking. Ministers preach their hearts out and still report non-responsive parishioners. Sunday School teachers have felt their long hours of preparation were all in vain. Even Jesus felt that His disciples turned deaf ears to what He was saying. Sometimes what they heard, they didn't seem to fully understand. But when the day of Pentecost came, the disciples became full of the spirit and stood up and addressed the crowd proclaiming things they had been taught (Acts 2:14).

Even though it is not always obvious, we do plant seeds in the lives of others. When people have a special need, it is then that they remember the principles we have taught, and they make life applications based on those principles and truths. What we preach and teach is not a waste. Results will be realized at the proper time.

Let's not be weary because we will reap a harvest in due season if we don't give up. Our ministry is not a waste! Let's continue to proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior!

Think back over a time when you wanted to give up and someone reminded you of the seeds you have planted. Know that you will reap a harvest from those seeds if you don't give up.

You are invited to read and meditate on the Lenten lesson for Day 36.
