The other day, I heard a snippet of a sermon about The Good Samaritan given by the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. King said, “The Samaritan chose not to do good by proxy.“

Wow, “chose not to do good by proxy.” That blew my mind.

How often are we guilty of “doing good only by proxy”?

We do great, noble, and wonderful deeds in our minds but when a real need arises, we have an excuse.

Be open today to opportunities to do good deeds – – however small, and see how it improves your enjoyment of life.
