Do good. That’s my motto this year. Simple and to the point. Do good. My motto comes from my scripture motto Galatians 6:9-10.
So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith (New Living Translation).
It’s very easy to get tired of doing good. It’s easy to compare yourself to others when you get tired of doing good too. It’s easy to say, well they aren’t doing good, and they certainly aren’t doing good to me, so why try? Because the Bible tells me so.
Scripture isn’t saying we’ve got to be best friends with everybody. It’s not saying everyone has to be in our inner circle to show that we’re being kind. It’s just saying, hey be good to people. Be good especially to those in the family of faith. And be good to those who aren’t because they need it most. They don’t have an eternal hope, don’t you think they need goodness even more?
Do good for people, and be good to people whenever you can. Goodness isn’t weakness, it’s holiness.
