Don’t be a sometimes do gooder, but a “slave to righteousness.
A lot of us are “sometimes do gooders.” That means that we sometimes do good in order to make people think we are great people. We give to the poor, help out at charities so that people will recognize our unique talents and inherant value.
But people who are truly concerned about doing good are not interested in making themselves look good. They are slaves of righteousness. These are the people who have repented for their sins and been forgiven for their wicked pasts. They don’t try to act like they’re better than others, because they know that they are not. Rather, they make themselves slaves to honor God and their fellow man by doing what is right.
Repent of your horrible sins. If you repent and believe in Jesus Christ God will forgive you and make you pure and righteous. Stop being a slave to sin. Be a slave to what is right as the Apostle Paul wrote:
I am using an example from everyday life because of your human limitations. Just as you used to offer yourselves as slaves to impurity and to ever-increasing wickedness, so now offer yourselves as slaves to righteousness leading to holiness. (Romans 6:19)
