October 5, 2014 DEVOTED TO DOING GOOD
In this world of sin and sometimes chaotic activities, those who are devoted to doing good will continue to do good. We don’t always hear about the good others do because the news focuses on the bad things of the world. However, do gooders are around and because of the good they do, they help others in so many ways. And because God is in the midst of the good they do, He blesses them and allows them to create hope for the future.
Titus 3:8 “This is a trustworthy saying, and I want you to insist on these teachings so that all who trust in God will devote themselves to doing good. These teachings are good and beneficial for everyone.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, we want to be Your good and faithful servants. We want to do good and help others. We want to show and share love with those around us. Help us today to be more aware of the opportunities to do good. Help us to be devoted to doing good and trusting in You. Also, Lord, help us to remind others to do good as well. We know we all get sidetracked with the things of the world but doing good and sharing Your word is where we need to focus. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
When we get absorbed in the things of the world, we often forget to do good to the people in the world.
All who trust in God will devote themselves to doing good.
It is possible to be devoted to doing good when we put God first in our lives each and every day.
We can be the faithful servants God wants us to be and do good when we take our minds off us and see what others need.
Everyone has the ability to do good in them. Despite what they say or do that is wrong, there is a part of good in them.
When we don’t give up on doing good for others, we will receive a blessing from God that we can also share with others.
Galatians 6:9 “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” (NLT)
Focus: Despite what is going on around us today, let’s look for ways to do good for others.
