Whenever I read these words I think of the first day of school. Especially with Kindergartners. We would always tell them to be good to one another and to share with their neighbors. God has applied to same words to adults. Maybe we forget, as time goes by. Maybe we don’t know how. But the words are the same whether they apply to a 6-year-old or a 60-year-old.
- Part of God’s plan for our lives is to do good and share.
- When I sacrifice my time for others God is pleased.
- Whether I forget or remember, it’s still a choice.
- Sharing is hard. After all, it’s mine, isn’t it?
- Doing good is more than being nice.
Think about that last one for a moment. To do good we need to know what other’s need. It’s not something we can assume. For instance, I can assume that someone who is on a fixed income will need milk and bread by the end of the month. Providing that is an awesome thing but what if you add a special treat to that. I really don’t know anyone who doesn’t like some homemade cookies. This is beyond nice and good. It’s saying, I care about you and want you to enjoy the good things in life. I hope this makes sense and that you can find it in your heart to go out and do good for someone.
Blessings to you and yours!
