“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith" – Galatians 6:9-10
As children of God, doing good should be a part of our everyday life. Jesus Himself was an example of doing good wherever He went.
"That word, I say, you know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached, how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil, for God was with him" - Acts 10:37-38
In doing good, it should not be done with favoritism or with racism, or with a motive to be seen or be advanced to a higher position.
Doing good should be done with love and compassion towards all mankind, whether they are the same color as we are, from the same culture as we are, live next door to us, or miles away from us.
But nothing could be more discouraging than those who intend to prevent you from doing good. Just as we can expect there will be those who choose to allow themselves to be used by Satan to be an obstacle in your work; we can expect that God will stand against them, that you may carry on with your work.
If you have the opportunity and the ability to do good, keep on doing good. Do not lose heart and do not give up, for in due season you shall reap a full reward, that is reserved for all the good you have done.
