Look for no reward in goodness but goodness itself.
April 21ST - goodness is it’s own reward.
Be not simply good; be good for something.
Henry David Thoreau
Sad as it seems we always hear more about the bad going on in the world than we hear about the good. But there is a lot of good out there. Sometimes we ask our selves if it is even worth being good. We question our values, It’s totally on us to choose our reactions.
The joy of doing good for others is the reward for doing good for others. So let us keep on doing good to others. It’s a great feeling when you do something good for another. It’s a feeling money cannot buy.
Goodness is moral excellence, virtue or the state of being good, wholesome. It has tremendous power to move people to do what is good and beneficial for others. We don’t have to be good to receive good. It involves doing good things even toward those who may be thankless and unappreciative.
While being just, impartial, honest, morally upright, the good man is also understanding and sympathetic.. He really cares about people. He looks for opportunities to express kindness and consideration, willingly and egerly aiding those in need. He unselfishly cares for others, giving of himself
What you give you will get. There is more happinesses in giving than there is in receiving. The goodness in this world is the reason humanity still exists. It’s good people that make good places. Virtue is it’s own reward.
He that does good for good’’s sake, seeks neither praise or reward, but he is sure of both in the end.
