Galatians 6:9, NIV: Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

The long road is often the least appealing. In our fast-paced world today, it seems so many of us so often look for the quickest solution, or the short answer. My wife could tell you I am not one for the short answer. She has often asked me if I could just give her a simple yes or no and leave it at that. With me, the explanation that goes with the yes or no may be repetitive, and overly lengthy. But, my quirks aside, in life the best things may call for repetition, and often develop over time. Consider how we love others, and how we might love others toward the Lord. With the right amount of prayer, time, and love, we can help others let go of the short answers and turn toward THE Answer. But we ourselves must remember that even though our efforts may feel repetitive and lengthy, the harvest indeed will come if we do grow weary, if we do not faint, and if we do not give up.
