The #verseoftheday today is an interesting caution.

“And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God.”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭13:16‬

I wonder, how can something so elementary as “do good & share” be forgotten?

We have to actually remind ourselves to follow God’s ways. This is difficult, especially when others treat us badly.

How easily do I “forget” to do good to people who have betrayed me, offended me, or cheated me?

Apparently, doing good isn’t as natural for me as defending my rights or protecting my pride. Maybe this is why the author of Hebrews calls doing good a sacrifice.

I need to make the effort to do good, because this is how people see the love of God in me. Not in my words, but in my actions.
