Amos 5:14-15: “Do what is good and run from evil so that you may live! Then the Lord God of Heaven’s Armies will be your helper, just as you have claimed. Hate evil and love what is good; turn your courts into true halls of justice. Perhaps even yet the Lord God of Heaven’s Armies will have mercy on the remnant of his people.”

Do the right thing, especially when it seems to be working against you. Isn’t it ironic that self-interest actually does not have our best interest at heart? It’s a lonely society when people are just looking out for themselves. Even though it’s understandable why we think that way, especially when we are hard-pressed in a crisis; however, life is so much more than living in mere survival mode.

Try this today: be kind to someone you don’t know, and see where this takes you. It may make someone’s day, but it will certainly put a smile on your face too. That’s how we are wired by our Maker. Love others as you love yourself.

Go make it a great day!
