Galatians 6 10



Galatians 6 10 As we therefore have opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.


Galatians 6:10 says, "Therefore, as we have the opportunity, let us do good to all and especially to those who are of the household of faith."

This shows us that we have to perform acts of kindness to all people but favor our fellow Christians. 

One way you can do this is by supporting Christian businesses through purchasing their goods and services. 



3 Benefits of Supporting Christian Businesses



Benefits of Supporting Christian Businesses
1. You will be obeying the Word of God
When you purchase products and services from Christian businesses, you are obeying Galatians 6:10 by doing good to those who are of the household of faith. 




2. You may be spreading the Word of God
The Bible tells us that Paul stayed with Aquila and Priscilla And worked because they were all tentmakers by occupation and he reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath. (Acts 18:3-4)  

Thus we can see that Paul made tents which he sold to support himself as he preached the Word of God. Aquila and Priscilla were partners in his ministry because they gave him accommodation and thus helped him in doing what God had called him to do. 

If you lived during their time and purchased goods or services from Paul's tentmaking business, you would have been supporting his ministry because he also says For you recall brethren our labor and hardship and how we worked night and day so as not to be a burden to any of you as we proclaimed to you the Gospel of God. (1 Thessalonians 2:9)

Therefore, if you buy products from a Christian business you may also be contributing to preaching the Word of God as it may also be the owner's tentmaking business.

For persons who spread the Word of God like preachers, evangelists and Christian bloggers like myself supporting us financially is very important because it allows us to spend less time working to get money to pay our bills and thus allows us to spend more time spreading the Word of God. 

Therefore, make it a point to buy goods and services offered by businesses run by Christians as it may be their tentmaking business even if they do not state it publicly.

N.B. A tentmaking business is defined as a business which supports a Christian financially as they do what God has called them to do.

3. You will reap a reward
Jesus told his disciples, "Whoever gives you a cup of water to drink in My name, because you belong to Christ, I say to you that assuredly he will by no means lose his reward. (Mark 9:41) 

We can see a good example of this from the Shunammite woman who Said to her husband, "I know that this is a holy man of God ... please let us make a small upper room and put a bed, table, chair and lampstand there for him so that whenever he comes to us, he can rest in there.' (2 Kings 4:9-10)

One day as Elisha rested in the upper room the Shunammite woman had made for him, he told his servant Gehazi to call her and he asked her what he could do for her. Though she did not give Elisha an answer, Gehazi told him that she did not have a son. Elisha thus prophesied to her saying, "Around this time next year you shall embrace a son" and she did.(2 Kings 4:11-17)

Thus we can see that because she supported Elisha because he was a holy man of God, this Shunammite woman received a reward of a son.

Therefore if you support businesses owned by Christian ministers simply because they are run by men and women of God, you will also reap a reward. 

So make it a point to spend your money in Christian businesses because you will be making an investment in the Kingdom of God and you will by no means lose your reward(Mark 9:41)

As you heed Galatians 6:10 and do good especially to those who are of the household of faith, do not get discouraged if you do not reap your reward quickly for Galatians 6:9 tells us Let us not grow weary while doing good because in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. (Galatians 6:9)
