Do Good

You know when you hear something over and over, and over and over, and over and over again, like ‘wash your hands’ and ‘wear a mask,’ you get the feeling that the message is important, that we should listen and take action.

Recently, I became keenly aware of the same thing as I read the brief book of Titus. I mean, the book is only three chapters long with a total of 46 verses, but I couldn’t help but catch Paul’s message to his spiritual son. I’m sure you will too.

“Teach what is good” (Titus 2:3c). “In everything set them an example by doing what is good” (2:7a). Be “eager to do what is good” (2:14c). “Be ready to do whatever is good” (3:1b). “Be careful to devote (yourselves) to doing what is good” (3:8c). And finally, “Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order that they may provide for daily necessities and not live unproductive lives” (3:14).

Do Good

Most of us have a gut instinct that recognizes the good we ought to do. We hear that inner voice encouraging us to step up. The difficult part, for most of us, is actually doing it. So, today … and every day this week … and well, you get the idea … let’s DO good. If you need ideas, Paul gives some specifics in Titus 2:2-10,12; 3:1-2. Let’s stop being focused on our self, our needs and desires, and instead, see the good we ought to do, and simply do it! Why? Check out this promise. “Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men, because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does …” (Ephesians 6:7-8). Sounds good to me!
