We spend a lot of time trying to help the bad people. The people that have incredibly hard lives or just poor lost souls. We want them to know that they are loved and that someone cares about them. We want them to know that we will forgive them for all the wrong that they have done or will do. We are hoping and wishing that they will turn from their bad ways, that they will join us on the good side. But what about good people? How much love are we giving to them?
In times like these it is easy to forget the good people out there. Working hard. Taking care of their families. People making daily sacrifices trying to make the world a better place; one small, kind jester at a time. We often take these people for granted barely saying thank you for all the wonderful things that they do for us.
Somewhere along the line we decided that good people don’t need a thank you, a hug, or any love. Somehow it is wrong that a good person would need these things. It would be like giving them a reward for being good and that wouldn’t make them pure of heart or all that good anymore.
We hold good people to a completely different standard than we do people that are bad. We praise a bad person for simply not doing something terrible but crucify a good person for not being perfect all the time.
For the strongly convicted good person this is something that doesn’t bother them at all. Being good for them is it’s own reward and they don’t require anything else. For those more human an act of kindness every now and then would definitely pick up their spirits.
We need to spend more time spreading love, not just to those dark souls, but also to those people that we think are beacons of light. If we did this more maybe we would have more beacons of light and less darkness. We are much stronger together than we are apart.
There is nothing more powerful than a group of people sharing the love of God in fellowship. In such an environment anything is possible. It can help you endure all that life can throw at you. It is definitely something that we need right now.
Sadly we do not do enough to check on our good family and friends because they are strong and always take care of everything. But what about those days when darkness is coming for them and they feel all alone? Don’t you think it would be nice if they had someone there praying for them and supporting them?
We have to remember that we all need love and needing love is not reserved for the wicked. Good people need acts of kindness and mercy just like everyone else. We should do all we can for everyone so that we can come closer together is service to God. Spreading love is something we need to do for everyone not just those that we think need to come to the light.
