Doing what is right – Ray Anderson

Posted in Uncategorized at 1:00 am by kdkelly

I like Gary’s statement, “Can do and have done don’t even live in the same neighborhood.” The Spirit speaking through James had it exactly right, “To him who knoweth to do good and doeth it not, to him it is sin.” (James 4:17) It is also sin in the sight of God. That is why Paul admonished the Galatians to not grow weary in doing well, because we will reap the benefits of so doing in due time. He went on to say that we should do good to all men when the opportunity presents itself, especially to fellow Christians. (Galatians 6:9-10)

The real question, then, is when do we have the opportunity. That is the key. We have more opportunities than we realize. We need to keep our eyes open and be more sensitive to the world around us. When we are so preoccupied with “me,” it is far more difficult to see the opportunities to do good to “them.” Let us not forget what it commonly called the “golden rule.” If we see the opportunity to do good for someone else, it is often because we realize we would like someone to do that same good deed for us when needed. Let’s keep our eyes open. Amen
