“Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights.” James 1:17
Indeed goodness is not something we can manufacture on our own. It is given to us as part of the fruit we bear as believers kind courtesy the Holy Spirit. By this we are able to live lives characterized by goodness.
Wondering what’s in it for you as you do good?
You will be fulfilling the commission given us in Matthew 28:19
So in effect as others see your good works, they will praise our Father in heaven ( Matthew 5:16 ).
However it gets to a point where we allow our emotions to get in the way of doing good because of some ungrateful acts of certain people we come across.
The secret to overcome this barrier is to do everything you do as unto the Father and not men, if you have such a mentality you will find the extra edge to keep at it and do good even when you don’t get same treatments in return.
Remember to treat people as God treats you and not the way they treat you.
Your Heavenly Father will surely appreciate your efforts by blessing you even here on the land of the living and finally that crown will be put on your head when you arrive home.
You will be glorified for victory won in His name. Hallelujah!
Beloved, when you get any opportunity to help others, please do it and do it cheerfully.
God be with us all.
