”The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth” (Exodus 34: 6)
Goodness is one of the virtues that God graciously bestows on the people that love Him. God, Himself is gracious and merciful. He is abundant in goodness. He, therefore, wants His children to imbibe the deeds of goodness through His grace in our lives. The Bible exhorts believers to, “Trust in the LORD and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.” (Psalm 37: 3).
John Wesley advises believers to,
Do all the good you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.
Today opens new opportunities to you to do good to your fellow brothers and sisters.
One great good you can do yourself is to do good to someone, someway and somehow. The good that man does follows after him, especially when he is a saint. The word of God says, “As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.” (Galatians 6: 10).
Challenge: Every good that does shall be rewarded by God
Prayer: Help me O Lord, to have the grace to do good at all times.
