“Do not withhold good from those who deserve it when it is in your power to help them. If you can help your neighbor now, don’t say, “Come back tomorrow, and then I’ll help you.” (Proverbs 3:27-28 NLT).
READ: I John 3:17-18; Ephesians 2:10
We get this sense of fulfillment whenever we do well to others. It is usually easy to do good to someone we love, most especially our family and friends. But it’s difficult expressing such goodness to strangers and our enemies. The hardest is in fact showing an act of goodness to someone you know hates you. But the Bible says that if you have the opportunity to be good to anyone; make sure you don’t withhold it. As long as it is in your power show that kindness.
We are creatures of goodness. God has designed us to be carriers of His goodness. He wants us to express it to our world. And because we are carriers of goodness, we must not withhold it. The more you give it out, the more of His goodness you will receive. When you do not empty your content, you cannot be filled with another. From the foundation of the world, we were designed to be agents of God’s goodness. That is our job description, to help our world. No matter how difficult it is, do not withhold such help. Some people might not even deserve to be helped in your own eyes. But in God’s perspective, we should show love and kindness to our world.
By doing this we express the nature of God to mankind. This brings healing to them.
Seek to smile at someone today. Give a listening ear, be a caring husband, wife, brother and sister. Show love to both strangers and even your enemies. Doing well is what protects the world form chaos. You are a vessel of God carrying His goodness. Give it out to someone today. You are created unto good works.
Goodness and mercy are following me. So I am a content carrying God’s love. I express them today and always, in Jesus name. Amen.
