Do the Right Thing

This spring, I spent many hours working in the yard, and it was discouraging at times because both our neighbors’ lawns are more weeds than grass. So, as I pulled weeds and applied weed and feed, I often thought, what’s the use. It seemed I was fighting a battle I couldn’t win. But I never gave up, and now our lawn is beautiful, and virtually weed free. Then this morning, as I worked in the yard, I noticed something that made me smile. Not only are the weeds gone from our lawn, our grass is spreading into the neighbors’ yards.

As I marveled at this unexpected development, it occurred to me that it often seems the bad in this world is overcoming the good, but what happened with the weeds in our yard, I believe can happen in our world, too. We should never give up doing the right thing and battling against the evil in this world. We should press on, doing our best to spread love and hope. It may seem to be a lost cause at times, but it’s not. Love will overcome hate and good will prevail when all is said and done. So:

But as for you, brethren, do not grow weary of doing good. 2 Thessalonians 3:13
