Because we were designed and created by God to do this.
He gave us the ability and tools to be able to make a difference in the world. We would not be told to do it if we did not have the capacity for it. It is part of God’s very own nature and character that has been deposited in us.
Because it is part of living a life that honours God.
We are called to live lives that honour and bring glory to Him. When we are ‘doing good’ we are displaying this honour. We are in effect being His hands and His feet to touch His creation.
1 Peter 2:9 ‘You are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for He called you out of the darkness into His wonderful light.’
Because it is in our best interests.
Psalm 37:3 ‘Trust in the LORD and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.’
So there is a connection between ‘doing good’ and living in safety. Our well-being and our prosperity depend on it. I wonder if you have ever seen it in this light?
