Joel Osteen Daily Devotionals August 30 2022 : Good to All:
Galatians 6:10, NIV
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
Jesus said that people will know true believers by our love for others, not by how many Scriptures we quote or the Christian bumper stickers on our car. This world does not need to hear another sermon nearly as much as it needs to see us being good to people–helping others, meeting needs, and blessing them with our words and actions. We were created to make a difference in the lives of others through our love for them. True love is seen in our actions–giving our time, our money, an encouraging word. When you show love, you are showing God to the world. You’re never more like God than when you take time to do something for someone else.
People are watching you, and one of the best witnesses you can have is simply by being good to people. The Scripture says to be on the lookout for those you can bless. Don’t miss the miracle of the moment to do good whenever situations cross your path to bless people.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for all You have done in my life and for every opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others. Help me to be more aware of the people and needs around me and to love others as You have loved me. I want to be a blessing and a testimony of Your goodness. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
