Doing good for the Lord
One day, Islaw a prisoner decided to donate his blood for charity outside the prison. Few weeks later, he donated one of his kidneys for someone in need, again outside the prison.
Not too long, Islaw informed the prison administration that he is going to donate his eyes. At this point, Ambo, the jail warden, contested and said, “We can’t allow that anymore. Your intent to donate is obvious. You are slowly trying to escape!”
Sometimes, despite our sincerest effort to do good things, our actions may be subjected to misinterpretations.
Nevertheless, let us not deter of doing good things for it is the Lord who sees our hearts and He has already set a day where He will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil (Ecclesiastes 12:14). And to guide us for the right motive of doing things good, may we be guided by the word through Paul which says:
17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it allin the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him (Colossians 3:17)
