Do Good to all People at All Times – You may want to defend yourself with the Bible verse that says you should not be evenly yoked with unbelievers and oh, the one that says do not be seen in their company. Little did you forget that even as a filthy sinner as you were, a holy Jesus Christ died for you so you can have the chance at life. Therefore I say to you, Do Good to all People at All Times!
“Trust in the Lord and do good.
Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.” – Psalms 37:3 NLT
The charge has always been simple, do good, do good, do good and as freely as you give the LORD shall prosper you and guarantee your safety in your dwelling place no matter the chaos or hostility around. Do not fret for He is the good shepherd and takes care of His flock, just do good. – John 10: 9,11, Isaiah 40:11 Ezekiel 34:23
Do good to all manner of persons, regardless of their race or religious affiliations, just do good to them all.
Many would want to hear “God bless you” or a “thank you” after they do good, I know it’s refreshing and most times inwardly rewarding. But do not always count on getting one or any of those phrases or their likes, some people you do good to may not even count you as human, but do not stop keep doing your good.
The good shepherd did not get a thank you nor God bless you from anyone when they nailed Him to the cross for what was no fault of His. If indeed you are walking in the shoes of Christ, then look forward to no accolades here on earth, keep on doing good to all people at all times.
When there is mass chaos and unrest, and you may count yourself as saved and not affected by the situation, the proof of your christianity lies in your ability to do good to those affected by the situation, your ability to show care and love as Christ represents.
Let your christianity be seen through your doing good to the unbeliever lying on a sick bed, those on the streets, those in prisons, those in need and the poor and the helpless. The preaching of Christ has everything to do with helping those in need of a hand!
Once you are a servant of God, be ready to be used, be ready to extend a hand to others for the Glory of God can be seen and a chance for the unbeliever to be convicted of your God and Jesus Christ.
Do Good to all People at All Times, Do Good to all manner of persons, not only to people in your house, friends and congregation. Spread the love of Christ Jesus!
Dear Lord, lead me, send me and direct my path to do good to all those in need for the Glory of your Name. Amen.
