Let Them See
Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon.
When a person does what is good, they walk an interesting line. Sometimes the Bible says that good deeds should be done anonymously. After all, the world doesn’t need anymore big egos. But at other times, the Bible says that good deeds should be put on display for others to see. This is not to be done in a boasting sort of way, but certainly in a publicly evident way, where attention is drawn to the good action.
What gives? Which is it? Good deeds, yes. But private or public? Well, it seems that sometimes good deeds can be contagious. If someone who respects you, who knows your heart, and who knows your motives, sees you serving others, what might they be likely to do as a result? And when you help people, that can spark something within them to respond in a similar way. Your unselfish actions encourage others to serve unselfishly as well.
Pray for the Day:
Dear Jesus, check my heart and kick me into gear. Let your good work in me spur me to serve others. Amen.
