Daily Bible Verse - 11/5/2007 - Galatians 6:9

NIV Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
KJV And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
NASB Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.
Galatians 6:9
Lest any should become discouraged, Paul reminds his readers that the rewards are certain, even if not immediate. You do not harvest a field of wheat the day after you sow the seed. So in the spiritual realm, the rewards surely follow faithful sowing in due season.

In this verse, Paul speaks of doing good. The apostle has argued at length that such works cannot justify (2:16) or sanctify (3:3) anyone. However, good works are, in fact, an important fruit of the life of faith (5:5) that God has planned for each believer (Eph. 2:8-10).
