Choosing To Spread Goodness

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9 (NIV)

“What goes around comes around,” says the popular proverb. Basically, what it means is that whatever it is that we sow, one day we will also reap; thus, if we do good, good will also be done to us.

You might say to me, “doing good even when things are tough, or even when others do us wrong is not a simple thing.” And I would say to you, “you are right. But the essence of faith is to believe that all things are possible with God and that if we persevere, we will reap the fruit of our faith.”

There once was a servant who owed his master a large sum of money (check out Matthew 18:21-35), and he could not pay him back. The master was going to throw the man in jail, but he pleaded with his master for mercy and his debt was forgiven. You would think that the man would’ve learned a lesson about forgiveness, right? Well, soon after he had his debt forgiven, that man went off to try to recover a much smaller amount of money owed to him by a fellow servant, who pled with him to let him work the debt off because he did not have the money. But the man was completely cold-hearted and instead, threw his fellow servant in jail. When the master found out what he had done to his fellow servant even after the master had forgiven his debt, he threw that man in jail until he could repay the debt that had already been forgiven. That man reaped what he sowed, and in his case, it wasn’t good.

Each day that we live we are faced with a myriad of decisions, and we must ask ourselves if the decisions we make are good not just for ourselves, but for all those involved. Whether it is money-related, as with those servants in Matthew 18, or an exchange of words or actions, the truth is that sometimes we are on the giving end, but at other times, we are on the receiving end, and we must remember that each time we lower the gavel on a decision.

If what goes around comes back around, let us choose to make a full circle with some good, because we can all benefit from it.

“Father, thank You for forgiving us every day that we live, even when we deserve it the least. Amen.”

For His Glory
