Edifier du Jour-Galatians 6:9-10(NASB)
9 Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary. 10 So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith.
Atlas might be allowed to shrug, but the believer's supposed to hang in there and keep being salt and light to the world. As you can see from the lateness of today's entry, I'm in veg mode this morning (nothing on the docket before a dentist appointment at 10:30), having had a busy stretch at work and church since Thursday. However, I don't want fatigue to distract me from doing the things that I need to be doing. Sometimes, that fatigue can be due to frustration and cynicism that your work is in vain. We can sometimes think that we've gotten our Good Deed For the Day in and give ourselves permission to mail the rest of the day in. Not to ignore the need for R&R, but mentally applying some sort of goodness quota isn't a biblical concept. We're supposed to give God the best that we have; yes, I (and most of us) fall far short of capacity. Keep giving your best on and off the job, even if it isn't always fruitful.
