Do you remember comedian Bill Engvall who made jokes poking fun at people by saying “Here’s Your Sign”?Sometimes I feel like God rolls his eyes and pats me on the back and says “here’s your sign, silly girl”.
I think there are times we feel God calling us to do something and we are afraid to step out of our box. We pray about it. We read scripture. We get the “feeling” that we should be doing a particular thing but we just keep waiting for a “sign”.
I saw a billboard on the internet the other day that said “If you are waiting for your sign, here it is. ”
This is what God is telling us today. If you are waiting on a sign to show God’s love to others, here it is. Right here in scripture. As we approach Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, we often use these times to focus on those people and families who are less fortunate than we are. At Thanksgiving we reflect on all the blessings that we have received throughout the year and find ourselves wanting to share our blessings with others.
Then we start Christmas shopping for friends and family and make the list of our wishes and get caught up in spending money and before we know it, we start second guessing whether or not we can help others. God is telling us to use opportunities to give to other people. Don’t let those opportunities pass by and decide that we should have done something when we had the funds rather than waiting too long and find that we have used up our resources.
Don’t wait for another sign to help others. Look at scripture and start helping others now.
Galatians 6:9 – Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
Right here it is – written in plain English and clear understanding. No need to study and analyze it. Just do good to all people when you have an opportunity. Don’t wonder or waiver. Read Galatians 6:9 and then go do it. And enjoy doing what God tells you to do. Still have doubts and wonder if you should help others? HERE’S YOUR SIGN!
