{Galatians 6:9-10; ESV}

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.

One of the most-asked questions among sincere followers of Jesus Christ is, “What is God's will for my life?” We want a detailed map or plan. We want God to spell it out so we can follow the instructions. Too often we want it clear and uncomplicated, but God simply does not work like that. For a lot of us the most spiritual thing we can do is to do something—to turn right when we want to turn left. So we must move beyond simply choosing between right and wrong. We must resolve not only to leave the path of doing evil, but also passionately pursue a life of doing good.

Erwin McManus, Seizing Your Divine Moment, p. 43

Questions to consider:

  • When we don't know God's specific will for our lives what should we concentrate on doing?
  • Why is stop doing not enough in God's Kingdom?
  • What does it look like to do good?
