Do you know the biggest difference between doing bad and doing good? Doing bad is so easy. It just seems to come naturally to us. Doing good on the other hand … well, that can be seriously hard work.
It’s true, isn’t it? It’s easy to be grumpy. It’s much harder to put a smile on your face and have a kind word for someone when you just don’t feel like it. It’s easy to slack off at work. It’s a lot harder to honour your employer and work hard when everything’s raging against you.
That’s just how it goes. And so, all too often, we do good when we’re in a good mood, when it feels easy. But when we don’t feel like it, we do bad. The problem with that is others can’t predict how we’re going to behave. They’ll either benefit from our ups or bear the brunt of our downs, depending on which way the wind happens to be blowing today.
So here’s some powerful, godly advice to put wind in your sails:
Ecclesiastes 11:1 Do good wherever you go. After a while, the good you do will come back to you.
Where should we do good? Wherever we go. No exception. No let out clauses. No “depending on how you’re feeling today” caveats. No! Do good wherever you go. Not just because it’s the right thing to do, although it is. Not just because it honours God, although it does. Not just because it’s a great witness of who Jesus is, although it is.
But because, after a while, the good you do will come back to you.
You know it’s true! So, do good wherever you go.
That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
