I am a firm believer that helping others makes us feel better about ourselves. I also believe that when we apply certain principles to our service to others, we can grow spiritually. too. For instance, when we do something in private, when nobody else knows, it then becomes a matter between us, the person we help, and God. Jesus taught that this was the right way to do it (Matthew 6:3). It keeps our motives pure, and we get to personally see God working through us. Our deed then turns into a faith builder for us. Jesus’ parable of the Good Samaritan gives us some more thoughts on this. Just as the Samaritan redefined who our neighbors are, I believe that it is a good thing when we step out of our comfort zone and help someone who is not in our normal social circle.
