Just Do It!
And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint.
I tell you: some days, it’s just a struggle to do the right thing, isn’t it? Especially in a culture where self-interest, self-aggrandizement, and self-absorption are rewarded and encouraged. In ways subtle and overt, we’re pushed to do what’s expedient, to go along to get along, to turn a blind eye to injustice and wrong. And it’s so seductive, it’s so easy, isn’t it, to just go with the flow, shut up instead of speaking up, let somebody else be the do-gooder for today.
But God reminds us that He expects us to have principles. He expects us to have a backbone. He expects us to have ideals that we’re willing to fight for. He expects us to be above societal whim and fancy. He expects us to stand for truth and honor. He expects us to just do it . . . the right thing, that is.
God understands that it’s going to be a challenge, and that’s why He encourages us to keep the faith and to stay focused. And when the time comes . . . and He’s already decided (appointed) the time! … we will reap a harvest that’s sure to be abundant . . . And you know it has to be abundant, because God never does anything halfway!
