We’ve heard many people (in fact, everyone) around us tell “Be good, do good.” But, what exactly is the purpose of this line? What do we achieve by being good. Nothing much, but you get back the good.
When you see people being kind, compassionate, caring, you jeer at them, mock them without realizing you are the one who’s going to suffer. Doing good can be a very small thing, from sharing a book to rescuing a person from mortal danger. There are no adjectives for doing good.
Keeping our heart pure and clean is important. And, at the same time, doing good is equally important. You not only earn respect, but also earn God’s favour. Doing good gives long time benefits. And only on the long go will you realise that good that definitely lead to good in the end. You help a person one day, I am pretty sure they’ll help you out soon.
You might ask, what if everyone around me is not good and are mocking at me. Nothing, no arguing, no fighting, just give a smile and there you are, being THE good. If people around you are not that good, you be the change, you me the first one there who inspires others. Goodness is like smiles. It is definitely contagious. Sooner or later, people will change. Be the beacon and lead others to the right shores. And that’s kind of doing good too!
