This is a sweet little challenge to my own self.I’ve to do atleast three good deeds every day. I know that it is not a good practice to show off your good deeds as it’s forbidden in every religion and is also considered boorish and impolite in society but as I have decided to motivate everyone else, I shall be posting my three (or more) good deeds a day. Please consider it a reminder to do a good deed and not as a way of showing off.
So,What does your religion say about doing good deeds?
“Good deeds annul evil deeds. This is a reminder for the mindful”
-Islam Qur’an 11.114
“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.”
-Christianity, Galatians 6:9
“Whoever, by a good deed, covers the evil done, such a one illumines this world like the moon freed from clouds”
-Buddhism. Dhammapada 173
“Heaven is not attained without good deeds.”
-Sikhism. Adi Granth, Ramkali-ki-Var, M.1, p. 952
“I call heaven and earth to witness: whether Jew or Gentile, whether man or woman, whether servant or freeman, they are all equal in this: that the Holy Spirit rests upon them in accordance with their deeds!”
-Judaism. Midrash, Seder Eliyyahu Rabbah 10
“No one who does good deeds will ever come to a bad end, either here or in the world to come. When such people die, they go to other realms where the righteous live.”
-Hinduism. Bhagavad Gita 6.40-41
You never know which of your good deed becomes your ticket to heaven.
With compassion, benevolence and for the cause of humanity,
