As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men…
I was reading in a devotional book this morning when I came across the above verse. While there are many things in the Bible that I believe many people overthink, I believe that Galatians 6:10 is a verse that many people don’t put enough thought into. I may be guilty of overthinking this verse, but I want you to know that I do not believe that this verse is simply talking about kindness. I believe that this verse is talking about something much greater. And I believe that, if you will get a bulldog grip on the truth of this verse, it will change your life and it will change this nation.
James 4:17 says, “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.” That is what I believe Galatians 6:10 is referring to. Whenever you have the opportunity to share your faith, whenever you have the opportunity to help someone in any way, it is only because God has given you that opportunity. Therefore you should take that opportunity and use it for the glory of God. If you don’t, you are sinning against Almighty God.
If you have an opportunity to do good, know that God is the One who has given that opportunity to you. You should also be aware that, if God has given you an opportunity, He expects you to use it. If everyone would do the good that they know they ought to do, this nation would not be in the moral crisis that it is in today.
