Do Good. It Pays Better!

Romans 2:7 To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. 

But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger. 

There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile; 

10 but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. 

11 For God does not show favoritism.

It pays to do good, not only to those that appreciate or will pay you back. Just be a nice person and listen as the Lord leads you to touch another. You never know when God will reward you. Moreover, there is a kind of satisfaction that you get inwardly when you are able to bless someone even secretly.

Likewise, the evil you do when no one is looking will find you out and you will not see it coming. It will be larger than the evil you did to someone, a cause, or an organization. Repent! Start doing good, peradventure your good will undo the evil you have done.

God is no respecter of person! Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows – Galatians 6:7 What you sow is what you will reap! Sow good seeds!

Shalom

Sow Fairness!

We often talk about Israel’s slavery in Egypt. Can it be said that what Joseph sowed, he reaped for Israel? For Pharaoh he reduced all Egypt to slaves in their own land for food.

What might have reduced you to a shadow of yourself?

What position are you now that you are exerting authority to reduce others to a shadow of themselves? What role are you playing in the lives of others?

What you sow you will reap friends? It’s the law of creation! What you are sowing now your generation unborn will feel the ripple effect of it! Repent!

Repent now and restitute. It is never too late. Israel ended up being slaves for much longer than the Egyptian were slaves in their own land.

Joseph didn’t have to buy the Egyptian land, he could have given them seed to sow and rightly get a fifth of the produce, but he waited until the people in desperation sold themselves and land for food.

“Power corrupt, absolute power corrupt absolutely”

Only genuine love of God will prevent you from taking advantage of people in their misfortune.

Genesis 47:20 So Joseph bought all the land in Egypt for Pharaoh. The Egyptians, one and all, sold their fields, because the famine was too severe for them. The land became Pharaoh’s, 21 and Joseph reduced the people to servitude, from one end of Egypt to the other.

We need to learn to conduct and execute our affairs, wedge given authority with tact, fairness, diplomacy, and most especially love.

The Lord is a God of fairness and justice. He always repays!

Shalom!
