Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. Galatians 6:10
Let us do good to all people. This is a really weighty command, especially when it is so easy to get focused on our own desires. It takes effort, intention, and surrender to the Holy Spirit to put the needs of others ahead of our own. Jesus tells us to love our neighbors as ourselves, and then he shows us how by example. I love that Jesus spent three years in ministry cleaning up messes that He did not make. The whole reason He was here was in the first place was to create a bridge between us messed up sinful humans and our Holy, Perfect Heavenly Father. When we show acts of love, through the power of the Holy Spirit, we bring the kingdom come.
