There is a popular saying today that “no good deed goes unrewarded”. Well, lets be honest sometimes it feels that way. But hey, no one promised us that hospitality and brotherly love would come easy. And certainly there is no guarantee that it will be rewarded to us here on earth.
We must continue to treat others with love and dignity. And pray that we don’t get emotionally mugged in return. Ohhhh! But Father God, promised us that our good toward others would be rewarded. Why? Because of our faith and trust in God and His Word.
Therefore, when we are tempted to stop performing acts of kindness…Don’t!!! Do it anyway. Not because you are looking for any type of reward, but because in doing so we honor God.
“Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” Matthew 25:40
