A Good Deed
“A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.”
A Good Deed is one act, big or small, of kindness which makes life a wee bit easier for someone other than you. Acts of kindness can be so many that you actually do not have to plan it or think about it too much. All you need to do is be good at heart and when the occasion presents itself be sure to act. It is not good enough to be moved by the miseries of others without pitching in to help. A good deed is something that should come naturally to you, so much so that you do not think about it after it is done. Helping a child cross the road, stopping to give directions to a person who is lost, running errands for your old neighbor, soothing a hurt child….the list of good deeds are endless.
Small niceties lead to good deeds. If you give someone the right of way or smile when you enter an elevator, you are being polite and soon, this very habit of just being nice will be synonymous with just being “you” and unknowingly, you will be doing many good deeds without effort and without any expectations whatsoever. Just think how much better this world will be because of you!
