The How and Why of Doing Good

We had talks in my new church's men's group this morning and somebody brought in a piece written by Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Boiled down, what it said was you may be persecuted or laughed at or thought half nuts for doing selfless good...but bottom line, do it anyway. NOTHING GOOD IS EASY. We have to realize this going in and basically refuse to let frustrations get us down. How? Well, the other big component of our talk was that the peace of the Lord is a communal thing...sharing deepens and strengthens our peace and resolve...to GIVE and TAKE COUNSEL with each other knits the fabric together.............
