Doing good

17 Sep

Now who will harm you if you are eager to do what is good? But even if you do suffer for doing what is right, you are blessed. Do not fear what they fear, and do not be intimidated, but in your hearts sanctify Christ as Lord. Always be ready to make your defense to anyone who demands from you an accounting for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and reverence. Keep your conscience clear, so that, when you are maligned, those who abuse you for your good conduct in Christ may be put to shame. For it is better to suffer for doing good, if suffering should be God’s will, than to suffer for doing evil. (1 Peter 3:13-17, NRSV)

Who will harm you if you are doing good?

Have you ever helped some one and just left behind in the dirt?

But you see here is the thing, we are called to be salt and light.

We are called to give up our coat, and to walk a mile in the others shoes, so that we can show forth His love to the world.

Not so we can be treated right, or fairly, or anything.

We are to show His love because He called us to.

So follow after Hi and know that your reward is in heaven, and keep showing His love.
