Isaiah 59-61, 2 Thessalonians 3 • Key Verse: 2 Thessalonians 3:13
Among the familiar quotes of Sir Winston Churchill is the line from a speech he gave at the
Harrow School on October 29, 1941. They were not darker days, according to Churchill, but
sterner ones. England was engaged in the war against Germany. It was there that he uttered the
famous line, “Never give in, never, never, never, never.” Some think that is all he said, but there
was more. It is this sentence, though, that stands most firmly in our memory.
Among the sayings of Paul, this one is not as well remembered but should be. He said, “And as
for you, brothers, never tire of doing what is right” (3:13). Had Churchill said it, it might have
been, “Never tire, never, never, never, never, never.”. But we do. We grow weary in well doing,
which is exactly the opposite of what God wants. What causes us to tire?
Other activities. We get involved in more than we can handle and as a result sometimes tire of
things that are good for us to do.
Opposition. Satan opposes our efforts to do right. That can be wearing, causing a spiritual battle
fatigue.
Distractions. Maybe instead of distractions I should say attractions. Other things catch our
attention and may appear to be more appealing. Then we tire of what we are doing; the luster is
gone because something else is more attractive.
These are just a few reasons. Remember Pauls words: “Never tire of doing what is right.” Don’t
give in or give up.
Are you weary in your soul? Examine the source, or cause. If it is something that is pulling you away from
doing right, don’t let it. Ask God to renew your strength..
