We have all heard that phrase before. Oh, they are nothing but do gooders! Well, consider this saying:

Do all the good you can

By any means you can

In all the ways you can

In all the places you can

At all the times you can

As long as ever you can

                                                     —-John Wesley, English Evangelist

Galatians 6: 9-10 (The Message Bible)     “So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up or quit.  Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith”.

Interesting!  Many times when we think of doing good, we only think of the poor and needy, which we most certainly should.  However, these verses say clearly that we should work for the benefit of ALL, starting with those closest to us in the community of faith, which means believers!  Wow, this certainly adds to the scope of those we are to help and do good.  This community, I believe, also includes the ones closest to us—our families!  Doing good not only consists of doing the BIG things, but whatever SMALL helps we can give.  Encouragement, prayer, what can we help with, etc. may just be what a person needs at that time!

Who needs help with whatever today?  Someone in your own household?  Your church?   Think about it, hug your wife and kids if you haven’t lately or make a call, visit a friend .  You might just “make their day” and be the one God uses to bless them   One thing is certain, you will never know until you reach out as we to do.  The blessings are waiting for you!!
