I did a favor yesterday,
A kindly little deed ...
And then I called to all the world
To stop and look and heed.
They stopped and looked and flattered me
In words I could not trust,
And when the world had gone away
My good deed turned to dust.
A very tiny courtesy
I found to do today,
'Twas quickly done, with none to see,
And then I ran away ...
But someone must have witnessed it,
As I sped back the stony path
Roses were blooming there.
Don't give up on doing good for Christ. His rewards are eternal.
My favorite scripture is ...
Romans 9:37-39 - No, in all things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present not the future, nor any powers, neither height not depth, not anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
