Putting Off the Good

Proverb 3:27

Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of your hand to do it.


A few days ago, when I led the fellowship in my office, I chose the topic about an act of kindness. It related to a scripture in the Bible I had just meditated on recently. I asked my colleagues a simple question: What act of kindness you wanted to do but you put it off and you regret at that moment?

And then each of my colleagues told his/her own story. There’s a man who regret not obeying his parents, a woman who regret ignoring her mother’s feeling when she was sick, and there’s another man who regret yelling at his father. The rest were regret not helping a victim of an accident and regret not sharing the gospel to those who need it most.

As a matter of fact, every day we have many opportunities to do acts of kindness for others. We can help the blind crossing the street, encourage the sad, reminding others for their important appointment, and many more. Unfortunately, we fail to consider sharing the gospel and talking about Jesus as an act of kindness.

No wonder why we seldom or even never do it. In fact, there are so many people who desire the gospel and the merciful Jesus. Thus Romans 10:15 tells us, “How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!”

Besides respecting, loving, and helping others, we are urged to preach the gospel to those who haven’t heard of it. So, if today we have a chance to do an act of kindness, don’t forget to share God’s kindness as well, for many people deserve it!


Do good as long as you have a chance, and don’t put it off!
