Doing Good To All



"Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.
The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap
destruction;
the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal
life.

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will
reap a harvest if we do not give up.
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially
to those who belong to the family of believers."

Galatians 6: 7-10

Let us do good to all irregardless of the circumstances. Our good deeds become the sweet fruits of our tree that gives glory and honor to God wherever we may go.

Mel, this was so good! God is speaking to me about reaping and sowing because I have heard a little bit about this same thing earlier today. I need to be in prayer and ask HIM to reveal what He wants me to do. Thank you always, for your sincere and Godly witness. It's an honor to call you 'friend'. Jennifer

Hi Jennifer,
The Lord will always send people to us whom we can extend help. We must not be choosy. We extend help to show God's incomparable glory in our lives not that men will praise us for our good deeds but our good deeds will show the presence of the Lord Jesus in our lives and His name will be glorified through us. Let us be careful never to steal glory from the Lord for He alone deserves all the glory, honor, power and thanksgiving from us His creatures. Thanks my friend. I'm also deeply honored to be called your friend.

Mel,
I left a thank you note of sorts on my comments section from yesterday's post. It is always a bright spot in my day to hear from you. I was thinking, did I understand it right, awhile back, that your wife is here in the US? Give your family my regards...Jen

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Jennifer,
Yes that's right. My wife is the US doing odd jobs for us. She cannot find a permanent and secure job because her papers are not in order yet. She's earning some money to pay a lawyer to arrange her papers. I hope you are all alright in your family. God bless you all.

Please tell your wife I wish her well and she has a friend in Alabama. I hope she has found Christian friends and a support system here. I will pray for y'all.

Hi Jennifer,
Thanks for the concern. My wife has transferred to Las Vegas and is now working with an insurance firm. It is owned by her friend and they're just starting. I pray that their company succeeds. God bless you and your family always.
