“Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act. Do not say to your neighbor, ‘Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you’— when you already have it with you.” Proverbs 3:27-28
Doing good to others doesn’t always have to be a huge thing. Sometimes even a small act of kindness is enough to make a huge difference in the life of another person.
In Matthew 25, Jesus tells the disciples that those who do good to others are really doing good to Jesus. He lists feeding the poor, clothing the naked, visiting the prisoner, and sharing a cup of water with the thirsty. A simple cup of water at the right time can make all the difference in the world.
God doesn’t expect you to solve the world’s problems, or care for every single person in your community. Don’t go overboard in trying to do everything. Start small. Find a neighbor to love. Do something good for them. They’ll appreciate it, and so will Jesus!
