Mama, I know it’s hard to do good to other moms when you’re struggling to even do good to your own family, but God has called us to it. “So then, as we have opportunity,” the apostle Paul writes, “Let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” Galatians 6:10
The really good news is that God equips the ones He calls. As we seek to do good to other moms, He will be faithful to give us grace, opportunities, and a great reward. He will supply us with everything we need to His will.
How wonderful that God has chosen to care for his daughters through the ministry of fellow moms! Only our God would desire to show His love through the good works of weak and weary mothers.
Grace to Do Good
God's Word tells us that "He is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work." 2 Corinthians 9:8
When Paul uses the word “grace” here, he is referring to God’s practical provision in giving us everything we need in order to do the good works he has called us to do.
Reward for Doing Good
Doing good can get tiring, especially when you feel like you’re always on the giving end. For this reason, Paul cautions and encourages us, “Let us not grow weary in doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9
God knew that we might be tempted to grow weary in doing good, so He made sure to remind us of His reward. It’s a big one, friends—eternal life!
No one can be a perfect parent 24/7, especially when it comes to raising children. But we can support one another and make it all a little easier.💓
