Wednesday, April 17: Trust It - Do Good for Others
We’ve arrived at the mid-point of Holy Week with a challenge that should be easy for everyone. Our challenge today is to Do Good for Others.
Doing something good for other people is one of the basic principles of Christianity. Over the last several weeks, we’ve been challenged with a number of good and positive deeds for others. Today’s challenge brings them all together by just finding a way to help someone else.
There’s always a way to do something good for other people. Doing good can include showing kindness to someone with a smile or allowing someone else to merge ahead of us in traffic. Doing good can also include providing for those in need, apologizing for a wrong committed, or providing encouragement for those in doubt. We don’t need to receive anything in return or even an acknowledgement from another person. God knows what we’re doing and that’s enough!
Jesus taught us how to be kind to each other by openly accepting everyone around him. Jesus paid special attention to the lower class people, outcasts of society, and well-known sinners. This should be a clue for us as well: That no matter who crosses our path, we should be able to do something good for them.
Friends, strangers, and loved ones will be blessed through us today! Do good for other people today!
“Let’s not get tired of doing good, because in time we’ll have a harvest if we don’t give up.” (Galatians 6:9, CEB).
