Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. ” (James 2:14-16). Spiritual poseurs forget that real faith demonstrates itself through action. It’s a sure test of whether we’re acting for good—or just thinking about acting for good. It’s possible to look concerned, gush with emotion, talk a lot, and even buy the correct T-shirt without accomplishing anything solid. Doing good is more than thinking about change, desiring better things for someone, or wishing the world were different.
Don’t ever let go of a single giant dream. But your monumental visions aren’t where you start doing good; you need a “now-sized” view of your task. ” When you first begin to purposely, consciously engage in doing good, don’t let your focus drift to the gargantuan unless it’s to decide on a bite-sized piece. For now, think small. Brainstorm something you can do in the next hour or two. Or the next day or two. If you really aspire to do an act of kindness that needs a week or two (or more) to plan and carry out, then start mulling what smaller deeds you can do in the meantime.
Says Epimenides: “Cretans are always liars, evil brutes, lazy gluttons” (Titus 1:12). Paul adds some instructions for Titus to pass on to the believers. He says, “Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and always to be gentle toward everyone” (Titus 3:1-2). Taking Paul’s advice might sound like a sure way to get slugged, but the point is that God wants these believers to act for good in a society even more dishonest, brutal, and selfish than the one we live in.
