GOOD DEEDS

good deed

Hiya LHers! How have we been? My week didn’t start well tho because we’ve been having issues with internet in my company so I have been freaken bored doing nothing. Today’s post was borne while in church some days weeks back. You see ehn… I can’t explain what made me come up with the topic but what can I say, as the spirit leads…lol.
I have heard people talk about how they helped people, that is, how these people came to them begging and crawling on the floor for help. Some of these people even go as far as stating the exact things they did to help and what they asked for in return. 
Doing good is a selfless act. It’s putting people’s needs ahead of yours while expecting nothing in return. Good deeds are done out of the goodness of one’s heart. A man who expects something in return after helping his fellow man is a man with selfish interest. When we do good, the world don’t necessarily need to know about what we have done. (when they do know, its becomes eye service) Putting a smile on someone’s face and hearing them utter the two or three words ‘thank you’ or ‘God bless you’ can actually fulfill its purpose. Help someone today!

  1. Doing a good deed is one thing, doing it from your heart is another. To accomplish the later, your sense of self-worth and internal security has to flow from “the character ethic”. 😎

    Buh unfortunately, most people (including me 😮 ) are deeply scripted in the “personality ethic”. 😦 We perform our actions based on the reflection from the “social mirror”.

    What I feel needs to be done is a “rescripting”. A “paradigm shift” ….. With that I think the word will be a more habitable place. 😉

    Note – For the most part of this comment, I referenced Stephen Covey’s “7 Habits of highly effective people”…. If you havent read it yet, please place it in your bucket list for at least the first quarter of 2015. 🙄

    Have a good night rest. 🙂

  2. Hmn, doing good should be selfless and this encourages the ri[[le effect and helps the circle to continue. I do something for you, you do something for Tibs, Tibs does for Duru etc and the world would def be a better place.

  4. Even the bible says your left hand shouldn’t know how much your right hand is holding for offering. (Paraphrased) and that’s how it should be. Give because you genuinely want to, not cause you want to be lauded.

  7. Doing good should be its own reward but we’re only human. Sometimes we like to massage our egos and bask in the glow of our own greatness. As long as one isn’t boastful and humiliating talking about good deeds can be a learning experience for us and others. It can help establish credibility while also sharing knowledge.
