Over the years, Satan tries to present a distorted perception of the true meaning of good. His strategy is making people believe that doing good is something silly, cheesy or even old-fashioned.
Besides that, it is also very common for many to criticize those who give money to a beggar, judging both the giver and the beggar.
However, in many other cases, people just do not want to continue doing good deeds because they feel disappointed. They feel that they are constantly giving and trying their best for others but it seems that others do not appreciate that “good” or in worse cases, they feel they do not receive the same good in return.
If you identify with some of the cases, it is time for you to know the truth.
Tired of doing good?
This tends to happen when you usually do things to please people. It is important for you to remember that people are imperfect (as you are). They can also have weak areas to develop and “thankfulness” can be one of them.
God knew this, that’s why he advises us to do everything the best way as possible as it was for Him.
“And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not to men” Colossians 3:23
When you do things taking into account this Bible principle, you will be happy and it will be easier for you to continue doing it without feeling disappointed.
But there is more, if you don´t get tired of doing good, God will give you a reward when the time is right. You just have to wait until the beautiful moment God will surprise you with one of his blessings for keeping this word in your heart and into action.
“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9
When you do good deeds you show God’s love
The Bible encourages all believers not to get tired of doing good to others, whether if they treat them the right way or not.
Living a Christian life implies sharing with others what God gave us for them to get to know him, too. It is not only limited to words, but also actions.
If you keep God’s commandments in your heart you will receive every promise God gave us related to this topic.
When you bless others, you are blessing yourself. You probably know about it but did not realize how important it was.
“…‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:30-31
“Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward them for what they have done.” Proverbs 19:17
“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.” Galatians 6:7
