Why should we not get weary in doing good? (Part 2 of 2)

Daily Thought

Your Word for 22 July 2024

Genesis 48:21
Then he said to Joseph, ‘Look, I am about to die, but God will be with you and bring you back to the land of your fathers.’

do goodBecause it will bring a sense of fulfillment into our lives.
The Bible tells that it is better to give than to receive.

Acts 20:35 In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus Himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’
2 Corinthians 9:7-8 ‘You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. For God loves a person who gives cheerfully. And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.’

It is a very fulfilling place to be where you always have everything that you need and plenty left over to share. Doing good leads to a more meaningful life and that in turn leads to greater happiness and fulfillment.  As we ‘do good’ our lives will have meaning and purpose.  Philosophers have long known that living a life of meaning and purpose is the key component in the happiness quest.
Because when we ‘do good’ we are following the example of many of the greatest people that ever lived and in particular the example of Christ Himself.

  • ‘How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.’ William Shakespeare.
  • ‘Every sunrise is an invitation for us to arise and brighten someone’s day.’ R Goodrich.

Many of the heroes of the faith were known for the good they did. Jesus set us the ultimate example of ‘doing good’.  We can follow that example and ask ourselves: ‘What would Jesus do?’
