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


Dear brothers and sisters, never get tired of doing good.

– 2 Thessalonians 3:13



In an increasingly God-less and self-centered society,

goodness and kindness to others seems to have lost its Christian edge.

To a good Christian,

the opportunity to do good is seen as a privilege.

It is the great distinguishing characteristic of God that He always does good

– and He is good!

It was also what marked the character of the Redeemer,

who ‘went about doing good’ (Acts 10:38).


Whenever God gives us the opportunity and the means of doing good,

it should be, to us, an occasion of special thanksgiving and joy.

A good Christian ought to get tired of doing everything else

but never of demonstrating kindness and goodness.



My Lord and my God,

it is only when I stop thinking of my problems and start to count my blessings,

that I realise how many You have given me.


Lord, I thank You for this abundance of blessings,

and I ask You to provide me with opportunities

to share their fruit with others.

Lord, help me want to do good

and to give from what I have – materially and spiritually –

to those who are deprived.


Lord, help me realise and desire

the excitement that there is in doing what is good,

and let my soul rejoice in serving You!
