Chapter 8, Page 5, Book 21


To be good and to do good, is all we have to do.

John Adams

August 5th - do good

Do all the good you can, by all the means you can in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you all the people you can, as long as every you can.

John Wesley

I think that if we are to be good people, we have to do good for others.  We all have a choice of good or evil.  I make a choice every day to be good and do all the good I can.  There’s no sense in doing anything if you cannot do it well.  It’s a waste of time.

Everything we do comes back to you , whether it’s good or bad.  If we do good for others, it will come back to us doubly.

We are rewarded for the good we do  Helping others is not only good for them and a good thing to do it also make us happier and healthier too.  Giving connects us to others, creating stronger communities and helping to build a happier society for every one.  And it’s not all about money, we can also give  our time, ideas and energy.

Doing good gives us inner satisfaction..  If you do something for someone, it will give you inner peace. The secret to happiness is helping others. 

I grew up with golden rule that we should do for others what we would have them do for us.  It’s something I ‘ll never forget.  When we treat others the way we want to be treated, it’s the right thing to do.

How your treat others says a lot about who you are. It’s the true measure of your character.  When we treat others better, we discover that we have what it takes to give them hope.  In the process, we push our own limits. and expand our our minds and uplift ourselves. Helping others build their esteems builds our own set esteem.

This positivity pushes us to take action to add meaning to life and make it better. Over time this will circle back to you tenfold.

Do good and good will come to you.

Yep, there's a reason it's called the GOLDEN Rule.
I'm grateful my parents taught me to treat the janitor with the same respect I would a CEO.
