Blog: Being Busy, Doing Good

And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.” – Gal 6:9-10 (NKJV)

Summer time is not the lazy dog days of summer for the Merritts. Craig has been serving the Lord at Rumney Bible Conference, cooking for hundreds of kids, and continues to Pastor in Danbury, NH.

Kim just finished illustrating a Christian children’s book and is teaching guitar
lessons to 9 students. While they are busy with that, they also have a week of VBS, and a week of the kids ministry at Camp Maranatha. Of course… in there somewhere is the music ministry!

God promises us that if we do not grow weary, He will bring a harvest. Sometimes the harvest is big things like when souls are saved, but sometimes it is small changes towards Christ likeness, in us or someone we are ministering to. So we press on, and know that being busy is okay as long as we maintain our walk with Christ.

My soul clings to the dust; Revive me according to Your word.I have declared my ways, and You answered me; Teach me Your statutes. Make me understand the way of Your precepts; So shall I meditate on Your wondrous works. My soul melts from heaviness;Strengthen me according to Your word.” – Psalms 119:25-28 (NKJV)
