Good Deeds

Hey blogsville,I trust you'all are wonderful and having a great week. yes? I'm as cool as ever. Now let's get to today's topic:

So I was reading again the story of Tabitha(Dorcas) in the bible after so many years cuz,the last time before this one was in Religious class in Secondary school...the story became more interesting cuz,I had a more revealing understanding of who she really was. She affected the lives of those around her with her good deeds that even in death,it still spoke for her. She gave alms to the poor,made garments for widows and I'm sure they couldn't imagine life without her when she died hence,they sent for Apostle Peter.. That's exactly the kind of woman i want to be. Also the Proverbs 31 virtuous woman,did excellent works and it was said of her that; ""Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all."

Some people just can't help themselves from doing evil cuz they actually derive pleasure,from seeing people suffer.. I'll say they're weak cuz it's a lot more easier,to do wickedly than to do good.

Below,are some good deed quotes by great men:

*Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth,so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life,
one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.

Buddha

*Life is short and if you're looking for extension,you had best do well. 'Cause there's good deeds and then there's good intentions. They are as far apart as Heaven and Hell.

Ben Harper

*To be doing good deeds is man's most glorious task.

Sophocles

*Let each man think himself an act of God, His mind a thought, his life a breath of God; And let each try, by great thoughts and good deeds, To
show the most of Heaven he hath in him.

Philip James Bailey

Do a good deed today as y'all have,a great week.
