Lawful To Do Good

“Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.”  Matthew 12:12 NKJV

“Then He said to the man, ‘Stretch out your hand.’  And he stretched it out, and it was restored as whole as the other.”  Matthew 12:13 NKJV

“Then the Pharisees went out and took counsel against Him, how they might destroy Him.”  Matthew 12:14 NKJV

“But when Jesus knew it, He withdrew from there; and great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all.”  Matthew 12:15  NKJV

Jesus withdrew from that area, but not from healing on the Sabbath.

Thank You, Jesus, for being Lord of the Sabbath and Healer of all.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Lord, if I do good
in Your name
and am hated
for it

please give me wisdom
to continue
and not withdraw
from it.

God bless you as you continue in His name.

“Do Not My Words Do Good?”

“Is the Spirit of the Lord restricted”
Are these His doings?
Do not My words do good
To him who walks uprightly?”  Micah 2:7

God’s message to me may be one hard to hear and come from someone I don’t even know.

Thank You, God, for Your word that does good.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

My Spirit
can’t be restricted
it must go
where it may

doing good
through My words
wherever they’re
received today.

God bless you as His Word does good in you today!

Doing Good

“Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.”   Galatians 6:10

It’s fun to do good in general, but it brings me a special joy to be able to do something good for a fellow believer.

Lord, thank You for those opportunities to do good, and for placing the “good” in us that we do.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Extra Joy

So fun to surprise
with a good deed
to even do it
anonymously
and when it’s for someone
who also believes
His love spreads ever
more joyously.
