1 Peter 2:15 – For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. ESV.
Imagine a world where every person’s focus is to seize opportunities to do good for the person next to them!
It comes more natural with those who are close to us, but how about those people not within our inner circle?
Not our next door neighbor, but our next, next door neighbor; not the person who we have similar interests; but the one whom we have nothing in common.
Want to intentionally be more Christ-like? Why not set a goal of touching at least one other person each day with a little goodness? Ask God to lead you and watch a three-fold cord become strengthen: your relationship with the Triune God, your relationship with another person, and God’s relationship with each of you.
Also in a way, to do good in response to evil thrown your way allows you to imitate our Heavenly Father who does the same every day. Besides, it may be kind of fun to watch the perplexed face of others when you respond with goodness rather than retaliate with a form of violence (Romans 12:20-21).
Every movement begins when one person makes the commitment to act. Therefore, why not form a committee of one (you) and with Christ, go change your corner of the universe by planting seeds of goodness?
Besides, isn’t the Christian life an adventure of sharing God’s goodness with each other anyway?
Rooting For You in Christ!
