do as much good as you can

 

the right thing to do

How do you feel when doing the right thing is something you just don’t want to do? You’re tired. You’ve got a lot on your own plate. You don’t need to eat off someone else’s plate as well. But that nagging thought keeps bugging, “It’s the right thing to do.” And the worst part? You know that doing that “right” thing is not going to result in anything good for you except more fatigue.

The bible is clear about doing the right thing. We simply are never to tire of doing good. And yet we do. Even Christians don’t always feel like giving.

Sometimes I feel so ashamed because I hesitate to do what is right. I wonder if anyone else has the same problem I do. Does it comes easier for most people? Is there something wrong with me? Or is it, could it be, that I’m just tired? I prefer that thinking to thinking I’m selfish or self-centered. 🙂

The truth? I do have moments of selfishness, just like everyone else. But I also have an over-developed conscience; therefore, I’m harder on myself than anyone else. So when I don’t feel especially giving, even when I end up giving anyway, I berate myself for not having the accompanying emotions. A conundrum. That’s a common problem with people who have a tendency towards depression. They’re harder on themselves than even God.

There is a saying I remind myself of often. I tried to find its source but couldn’t. It’s just another way of saying ,”do the right thing’.

“Do as much good  as you can,

 to as many people as you can ,

for as long as you can,

in any way that you can.”

The one fact that remains is that it’s always the right thing to do the right thing.
