Your dictionary says, “The definition of a goody two shoes is a person who always does everything right and always follows the rules, so much so that it becomes annoying.”
That is what they say.
But hey, goodness is another fruit of the spirit. (See Galatians 5:22-23)
God is good.
All the time.
If God is good and you claim to love and worship God, you should be too and you can be too.
Do good unto others even when they do the opposite – yes, be “annoying”.
Do not overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. – Romans 12:21 (NIV)
It’s really not that hard. If it gets too bad, all you gotta do is count 1000 in your head.
Some people will say you’re over doing the whole goodness thing. Others will say you’re faking it. But if you genuinely do good, such statements won’t matter and you’d be rewarded for your good deeds by God.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. – James 1:17 (KJV)
Assume goodness and let it be one with you.
Be good this week as you have a good week!
