To Do Good...

One of the greatest secrets of planting and reaping up a harvest of righteousness is doing good. Everytime "let him show it by his good life, by deeds done [in humiliy]" (Ja.3:13). But doing good is a sacrifice. It will always involve giving on the part of the do-gooder. I love the mark of love that Mother Theresa has left for us: She said, "I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love." But when you come against a situation where you do not feel like you can give any more love, that is when you need God-love. Only He can make it possible to love like He did. In case I haven't taken my case home: serve others, put them first. It's easy to know God, you do good and forget about yourself.
