Whenever we have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all
– Galatians 6:10
Several words to think about…
Opportunity – Its the Greek word, kairos. It means “a propitious moment for decision or action.” It’s holy ground. It’s the time and space where God has planned good works for us to do.
Whenever – that means every time the Spirit presents us with the opportunity.
Let us – It is super hard (and lonely) to accomplish good alone. We are meant to work together.
Good of All – Shalom (wholeness and peace) only happens when it happens to all of us. No one can experience Shalom when others are suffering. But the word here for “all”, doesn’t just mean all people, it means all things! Creation (the earth, animals, plants, etc) are included – St. Francis got this right!
The follower of Jesus loves by stepping into the kairos and working for the good of all people and of all creation.
