S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
2 Thessalonians 3:13
And as for you, brothers and sisters, never tire of doing what is good.
As he was closing out his letter to the church at Thessaloniki, St. Paul implores them never to grow tired of doing good. Some had actually become busybodies and were lazy, and Paul addressed that too, but his great directive at the end was, “Please Don’t Get Tired Of Doing Good!”
Last night, my wife and I had the wonderful opportunity to be part of a great Christian organization fundraiser that provides clean water for some of the world’s most desperate locations. To sit and listen, not just to the need worldwide but to also hear of this incredible organization’s never-ending worldwide operation to address the problem, made me think of this verse. I almost felt like the leader of this wonderful team must have at one point in his life read this one verse and said, “Lord, I promise you I will do everything I can to obey this admonition of the Apostle.” But none of us have to lead a worldwide organization to obey Jesus’ call. We only have to say, “Yes I promise,” when He reminds us, “Please Don’t Get Tired Of Doing Good!”
I’m stirred up this AM as I read Paul’s admonishment to we the church. Once again, I want to say that with your help, I promise I will never get tired of doing good! Amen
