Excellent and Profitable

The saying is trustworthy, and I want you to insist on these things, so that those who have believed in God may be careful to devote themselves to good works. These things are excellent and profitable for people.—TITUS 3:8 ESV

After comparing the peaceable life of Christians to the rebellion and selfishness of unbelievers, Paul wrote these
words to his disciple Titus. In this verse, Paul sets forth the life course of all believers: one of good works that benefit not only themselves but others all around.

Caregivers understand the need for good works. When a loved one is dependent on others for daily needs, it’s apparent that someone must be devoted to good works—and not only on certain occasions, when they can fit caregiving into a busy schedule, but constantly and sometimes with difficult effort. Caregiving can be draining for us, but it’s vital to a needy person’s life.

The results of a caregiver’s commitment are “excellent and profitable” not only for the one who receives care, but for the giver, too. What could be more profitable than pleasing God every day?

Thank You, Lord, for making my works profitable, for me and for the one I love.
