doing the right thing

why is it so hard to do the right thing?

hydrangas from my mom's garden


I love it when I do the right thing. But I don’t always know the right thing to do and even when I do, I don’t always do it. (Just being real here.) Especially if I’m tired. Especially if it interrupts my plans. (I hate to have my plans interrupted.)

But most especially I hate it when I know that doing the right thing isn’t going to result in anything beneficial for me. There, I said it.

I’m self-centered at times. Yet, in the end, I’m always glad when my compassion overrides my selfishness.

Is there anyone out there as conflicted as I am about doing the right thing?

But today I did do the right thing. There were no rewards. No one said, “Thank you.”

There was only my inner awareness that I pleased God. For me, that’s enough. After all, everything we do, good or bad, reflects on God.

There is a saying I remind myself of often. I tried to find its source.  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.”

Is there anyone you need to do the right thing by today? No matter how inconvenient, no matter how little you might be rewarded?

God  bless and I hope you have a good day.
