Are you good to people?


Are you good to people?………..


The Bible says, “See that none of you repays another evil for evil, but always aim to show kindness and seek to do good to one another and to everybody.”  Notice the words aim and seek in this verse. God is saying we must be proactive. We should be on the lookout to share  His mercy, kindness, and goodness with people. We must aim for kindness and seek to do good. Moreover, we need to be kind to people even when they don’t deserve it. We need to walk in love and be courteous even when somebody is unkind to us.

When that coworker walks by you and doesn’t give you the time of day, God expects you to go the extra mile and be friendly to him anyway. If you are on the phone and somebody speaks harshly or is discourteous to you, it’s easy to think, I’ll just tell her off and then hang up. She doesn’t know me. She’s never going to see me. But God expects us to be bigger and better than that.

When that checker at the grocery store jumps down your throat for no reason, your initial response may be to act rudely in return. That’s the easy way; anybody can do that. But God wants us to live by higher standards. The Bible says,” we are to love our enemies. We are to do good to them that spitefully use us.
