“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 2 Thessalonians 3:13




Brothers and sisters,

do not be weary in doing what is right.


– 2 Thessalonians 3:13 (NRSV)






Suggest to people in general

to do something that is righteous, good and honourable,

and even if they don’t actually say it,

you can still sense what many seem to be saying to themselves:

“How boring!”


People want excitement,

and in an increasingly God-less and self-centred society,

goodness and kindness

can be very often regarded as hum-drum and unexciting

…and boring.


But to a good Christian,

the opportunity to do good

should be seen as a privilege

– an exciting one even!


It is the great distinguishing characteristic of God

that He always does good

– He is good!


It was also what marked the character of Christ our Redeemer,

who went about doing good.


Whenever God gives us the opportunity

and the means of doing good,

we should feel blessed and “chosen”

and we ought to be especially thankful

and filled with joy.


For a true Christian

opportunities to demonstrate kindness and goodness

should take precedence over all else.






Jesus, I want to demonstrate my love for You

by being good and doing good.

Guide me, O Lord!
