At A Holy Experience, Jeff Manion writes,

…Tragedy strikes.

Conversely, goodness rarely “strikes.” It arrives on the stage with little drama.

…As I reflect on my own life, I recognize the formative impact of both jarring tragedy and steady love.

The snail’s pace at which goodness travels will require extreme devotion to the journey.

…Goodness demands staying power. The question is whether we will summon the requisite endurance for a slow, faithful, consistent outpouring of love.

I believe this is why the apostle Paul urged an early community of Jesus’ followers:

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)

Paul addresses the issue of weariness because a life of goodness can be tedious and redundant.

…We will reap a harvest, if we do not give up.

…Because you can’t rush a harvest. You plow, you plant, and you wait.

…Goodness grows slowly.

It arrives through the repeated kindness of the diligent faithful.

It arrives quietly, traveling the slow path of devoted love.

Dream Big but Think Small.

Day by day, one loving act of kindness after another, you have an opportunity to grow a life of greatness.

So keep showing up. Keep planting.

Do not grow weary in doing good. The harvest awaits you.
