Doing Good

I took my friend, Carol, to the doctor after her surgery. As we were leaving we noticed a young woman in the waiting room. She was pale and breathing heavily.
I mentioned to the nurse that this woman should see a doctor soon. But Carol went right to the woman. She held the woman in her arms and comforted her. Carol had experienced this kind of suffering herself — she had gone through three cancer surgeries.
Our Bible verses today remind us to keep on doing good things like Carol did. Verse 9 says, “We must not get tired of doing good. We will receive our harvest of eternal life at the right time. We must not give up.” Sometimes it is easy just to look the other way and ignore people’s problems. But God wants us to do good things in His name.
Think about the people you will meet today. Be kind and compassionate and do good for God.
