Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
Delayed gratification is a process someone undergoes when he/she resist the temptation of an immediate reward in preference for a later reward.
In our text today, it is stated that we will reap “a harvest”. This means that there is a particular harvest attached to a consistent good deed if you do not give up. It is also quite interesting to me that Paul included himself by using the word “us” in this passage. I feel he used that word to explain to the Galatians that doing good is for everyone.
You may be tempted to stop doing good to that sibling or parent or family member of yours who recently hurt you. Although you may get momentary satisfaction from such but remember the concept of delayed gratification. You may also feel your friend or colleague or ex doesn’t deserve any good from you but I encourage you to act by faith and not by sight.
God bless you
