Each week, Pastor G writes a short devotional blog on the church website that is based on a different Hawaiian Word each week. Then he writes a longer message devotional to deliver on Wednesday nights.
Today’s ‘Ōlelo Hawai’i Word is Kīnāʻole. Kīnāʻole means I will do the right thing, in the right way, at the right time, in the right place, to the right person, for the right reason, and with the right feeling, the first time I do it!
In other words, “Just do the next right thing!”
Every challenge, every obstacle, every opportunity, and every decision in life, no matter how large or how complex, really can be boiled down to this idea. Just do the next, right thing. Therefore, you don’t always have to have the next 1,000 steps or the next five years all planned out in advance. Take on every day, one right step at a time. Consequently, just do the next, right thing. Let’s look at tonight’s Scripture
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time
we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. ~ Galatians 6:9
ἐκκακέω ~ ekkakeó ~ GREEK
To faint or to become weary.
But more specifically to be negatively influenced with the outcome of experiencing inner weariness.
To return to wickedness, to stop doing the next right thing. To grow weary of kīnāʻole.
