Unlock Doors

October 26, 2016

 The Son of God once said, in essence, “As you would that men should do to you, do you also to them likewise!”  Jesus practiced what he preached!  His deed matched his word, for the Scriptures tell us that “Jesus went about doing good.”

Americans have long been characterized by their acts of kindness toward others when in an emergency or crisis.  But what about every day?  It seems we are busier and more stressed than ever before just trying to keep up with our own lives. And, if we’re not careful, we can become less aware of the people around us who may have a need.   Sometimes we’re so consumed with self that we even forget the simple act of being courteous.

Someone has said about courtesy, “I am a little thing with big meaning.  I help everybody.  I unlock doors, open hearts, and dispel prejudice.  I create friendships and good will.  I inspire respect and admiration.  Everybody loves me.  I bore nobody.  I violate no law.  I cost nothing.  Many have praised me; none have condemned me.  I am pleasing to those of low and high degree.  I am useful every moment of the day.  I am courtesy.”

Wow!  That really defines it well.  Friend, there may be times when you cannot find the help and kindness you need, but there ought not to be a time when you cannot offer it to others.  Let me challenge you to purposefully look for ways to go “about doing good”.  It just may change someone’s life and yours too.
