Being A Better Person, I Believe In Christ, Personal

Have I Done Any Good….

_Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle._.jpg

In my church, we sing a hymn that is a reminder to be kind.

Have I done any good in the world today?

Have I helped anyone in need?

Have I cheered up the sad and made someone feel glad?

If not, I have failed indeed.

Has anyone’s burden been lighter today

Because I was willing to share?

Have the sick and the weary been helped on their way?

When the needed my help was I there?

 

There are chances for work all around just now,

Opportunities right in our way.

Do not let them pass by, saying “Sometime I’ll try,”

But go and do something today.

‘Tis noble of man to work and to give;

Love’s labor has merit alone.

Only he who does something helps others to live.

To God each good work will be known.

(Text and music: Will L. Thompson, 1847-1909)

Matthew 22:37-39

“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy hearth, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

This is the first and great commandment.

And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”

When we serve others, doing good for them, being kind to them, we are serving God.

Go, do something nice and kind for someone and share it here! I’d love to here your stories of kindness.
