Little drops



I saw one idiot riding his motorbike on the pavement on the wrong side of the road, a little further yet another idiot made a U-turn in the middle of a flyover. I wondered for a brief moment if there is merit in being good, when everything around is bad?

I always believed that what is inside makes the person and not the outside and despite people doing bad to you, you do what is right because you are in the right. Anyway this belief was mildly shaken as mentioned before. A little further I received the daily verse by SMS from a friend it read, “Let us not grow tired of doing good, for in due time we shall reap our harvest, if we don’t give up.” – Gal 6:9. If you sow a bad seed what you get during the harvest is good for nothing. If you sow a good seed what you get during harvest is useful to you and others. Never give up doing good.

My faith restored I reached office with a smile.

PS: I just realized that I have crossed 200 posts, this is No. 201! Its been an eventful 28 months of personal blogging. Thanks to everyone who have journeyed with me thus far. Thanks to those who will journey with me, for I have miles to go before I sleep...

To add another verse from the bible "God loves a cheerful giver" so let us not only give/do good to others but also do it cheerfully
