Do good.

“Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.”

— John Wesley (1703-1791)

Now the questions:

  • Why do I want to do good towards others? Is it from compulsion, or guilt or shame? Or is it compelled by love, which is will endure and sacrifice for their sake?
  • Why won’t I do good towards others? What keeps me from thinking of others more than myself (Romans 12:3)? Which of my comforts can be traded to comfort others?
