CONTINUE TO DO GOOD

In this world, you may find yourself struggling to do good but doing good is best. Some days it will be easy; other days it won’t be so easy. You may come across difficult people. You may find yourself in problematic situations. You may find yourself wanting to retaliate or wanting to revenge. But you must continue to do good. Doing good in spite of any turmoil is a sign of courage, not weakness. Good overcomes evil. Sometimes, you may have to separate yourself. But if that is what it takes to keep your goodness, then do it. Others may view your separation as being lame and will condemn or mock you, but their view is not important; God’s view of you is. When you “run” around with dogs, you begin to act like one and you may end up with fleas so protect your goodness by staying on the porch! Protect your eyes by watching what you take in. Protect your ears by being careful of the things and people you listen to. Both the ears and eyes take in things and carry it to your mind. The mind will carry it to your actions. And sometimes, the mind will carry things to your heart. And we all know what is in the heart will eventually come out so we must make sure that what we take in is GOOD. Many are not aware of how their “surroundings” affect them but the truth is – it does. Your surroundings can infect your goodness with depravity. Your goodness reflects God so allow it to shine to others. “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 5:14-16 ESV). – Written By Stacy L. Montgomery

  1. I have struggled with legalistic behavioral for so much of my life, that I must be careful to not go to far the other way. Our American Christianity looks too much like a subculture instead of a counterculture, however, and your post is a good reminder to identify the “fleas”!
