To be good, and to do good, is all we have to do. (John Adams, 2nd U.S. President)

This is Presidents’ Day in the U.S., a day to honor the men who have led our country for more than two centuries. Adams’ comment may be over-simplified but it’s certainly worth considering. To do good is a worthy purpose, but it can hardly be done consistently unless there is strong, ethical character behind it. Be sure to care for your “inner person”; be good to do good.

Never get tired of doing good (2 Thessalonians 3:13). At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up (Galatians 6:9).
