While did not have the opportunity to see him play live, one of my favorite baseball players is Roberto Clemente. The stories of his athletic ability coupled with his commitment to serving others has allowed his memory to continue to impact others. Roberto summed up doing good when he said, "If you have a chance to accomplish something that will make things better for people coming behind you, and you don't do that, you are wasting your time on this earth."
God calls us to serve others and do good. There are times when we might not see immediate results of our work and we may become tired or frustrated. Just because we do not see the results doesn't mean our work does not have an impact on others. We need to continue to do good without giving up. God blesses us with talents and opportunities to spread His Word and His love. If we give up or pass on opportunities to make the world a better place, we are wasting our time and our talents. God will guide us, but it is up to us to do good...all the time!
Call on God and allow Him to help you do good and not waste your time on earth!
Thank You for Your blessings. Help me to follow You and to always take the opportunities to do good and to make the world a better place in Your name. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
