Do Good Always

When you do a good thing to someone, they will always remember you, like that woman who poured her expensive perfume on Jesus in Bethany or like Dorcas in Acts 9:36-42. Dorcas was a good woman full of good works.

It came to pass in those days that she was sick and she died. All the widows stood by Peter and wept, shewing the coats and garments she had made while she was with them. Peter then prayed for her, and she rose from death. Her good deeds made the widows weep until Peter prayed that she was raised from the dead.

Good equips us with resources so that we can use them to benefit ourselves and other people around us. We must not use them to oppress other people or make ourselves more important than others.

We should always be humble when we do good. True humility is submitting yourself to the authority, influence and impact of God’s word and His instructions. When you do, you will receive more grace, power of promotion, increase and supernatural progress.

James 4:10 says, “Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up” (NIV). You should not let everyone know when you are doing good deeds. You should do it without expecting anything in return, and God who sees privately will reward you openly.

Helping others in their times of need pleases God because He wants us to show the love He gave us to people around us. Luke 16:9 says, “Here’s the lesson: Use your worldly resources to benefit others and make friends. Then, when your possessions are gone, they will welcome you to an eternal home” (NLT). You should never get tired in doing good because it will never be in vain.
