Galatians 6:10 “As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto
them who are of the household of faith.” There are three things here:
1. We should do good to all. Our love and goodness doesn’t just flow to our friends and families. It flows also to the stranger and, yes, even to our enemies.
2.While we do good to all we do good “Especially to our brothers” Why? Because they are family, we are bound to them by a covenant made by the blood of Christ. We are one with them in Jesus.
3.We should be on the lookout. He speaks about opportunity, and we should be looking for it. Perhaps many times an opportunity presents itself but because of the hustle and bustle of this life we don’t see it. May Christ give us His eyes to see not only the needs of others, but also opportunities to do good.
