Heartfelt Deeds of Kindness
Altruistic is said to be unselfish, compassionate, kind, public-spirited, selfless, benevolent, philanthropic, beneficent, humanitarian, bounteous. Clearly anyone possessing these traits would be highly valued in any arena. Yet there is so much publicity of those that cheat, steal, lie and kill. Where would any of us be if there were not those who practice a spirit of compassion? Most of us can immediately put our finger on someone who exercised kindness and benevolence toward us. We seldom realize the impact of a smile, a helping hand, some charitable act of kindness or sacrifice.
Jesus said, “But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.” (Luke 6:35)
Jesus always puts things in proper perspective! He has been good to us, shouldn’t we be good to all others? No one will probably notice our heartfelt deeds of kindness, but Jesus never misses a thing and rewards us for it.
