When you hold a banquet,
invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind;
blessed indeed will you be because of their inability to repay you.
~ Luke 14:13-14
Honestly, I often do good for the wrong reasons. I do good because I expect something in return. So, I choose the people I do good to. Or, I want affirmation and praise for the good that I do. So, I do that which has high visibility or popular to do. Or, I do good just to feel good about myself. So, volunteer for work no one else want to do.
Seriously, I should be doing good for those who cannot repay me. Better yet, do good anonymously. I will begin by getting rid of what I do not really need. And I can take care of one person, not related to me, maybe even unknown to me. Give out on my abundance and not out of my excesses.
