889th -- Living The Good Life


We should always do our best to let our light shine so that when we leave
a situation it will always be better than when we first arrived. Showing
our love, care, compassion, and openness can do so much to impact those 
who are not at their best in that moment. When we share a kind word or do
a kind deed, the impact towards the recipient is immeasurable because we 
never know what they are going through. The impact that each of us can 
have on our fellow man is amazing, but many times we choose not to interact
because we think we are “too busy” or we believe that “somebody else” can
do that kind deed. (Matthew 5:16) (Colossians 3:16-17) (Galatians 6:7)

What we must always keep in mind is that each of us can share in these 
opportunities of being a blessing. It is to our benefit just as much as 
to the recipient because blessings flow both ways. When you help to do 
for someone else, God will help do for you. I believe the most blessed 
people are the ones who are the biggest blessings. Their life is enriched
because they know that they are being used for a higher purpose. Be 
encouraged to take every opportunity to share from your abundance. As 
simple as your gesture may be, it can still make an great impact. Never 
think that you are not able to. Some of the biggest blessings start from
the smallest of seeds. (Luke 6:31) (James 1:27) (2 Corinthians 9:6-8)

I hope you are inspired and challenged by this message to always take the
initiative to be a blessing to someone else. Enjoy every moment of life 
and give to it all that you can.


I have been doing my best to live the good life lately. I don’t mean the 
television version with its giant mansions, fancy cars, and fat bank 
accounts either. By the good life I mean the “good” life. For me it is the
only type of life worth living. I even have a list of good suggestions that
have helped me along the way. Here are just a few of them.

Never pass up an opportunity to hug your kids, pet your dogs, or hold your
cats. Take the time to watch the sunrise, the sunset, and to notice the 
moon smiling down on you. Pray. Hold all the hands you can, pat all the 
backs you can, and give all the compliments you can. Always say “Please and
thank you.” Pray some more.

If a kind word comes to your lips speak it, if a kind thought comes to
your mind think it, and if a kind deed comes to your heart do it. Take
your time. Open doors for others, let cars pull out in front of yours, and
let people ahead of you in line. Pray even more. Always listen to that
sweet, gentle voice inside of you telling you to do something nice to help
another. That is God guiding you. Listen before you speak, forgive before
you hate, and help before you hurt.

Give this world all of your talents, your laughter, your energy, your joy,
and your light. Be an obedient child, a caring spouse, a devoted parent, a
doting grandparent, a cherished friend, a giving neighbor, and a good
Samaritan every chance you get.

Most of all, though, always remember that it is Love that makes a good
life “good”. In the book “In search of the Beyond,” Carlo Correto gave us
these words of wisdom. “Let us keep this truth before us. You say you have
no faith? Love-and faith will come. You say you are sad? Love-and joy will
come. You say you are alone? Love-and you will break out of your solitude.
You say you are in Hell? Love-and you will find yourself in Heaven. Heaven
is love.” May you always live the “good” life then full of Heavenly love
and oneness with God.

By Joseph J. Mazzella

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Philippians 2:13-15 “For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to
do of His good pleasure. Do all things without murmurings and disputings: 
That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in
the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights 
in the world.”

Romans 12:19-21 “Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give 
place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith
the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give 
him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be
not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.”

Matthew 5:43-45 Jesus declares
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall
love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your 
enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray
for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of
your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the 
good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.”

Galatians 6:1-4 “Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are
spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering 
thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so
fulfil the law of Christ. For if a man think himself to be something, when
he is nothing, he deceiveth himself. But let every man prove his own work,
and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
