For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all people, instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously, and in a godly manner in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus, who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, eager for good deeds.
Titus 2:11-14

It’s easy to do good in a begrudging way, to complain, roll our eyes or shake our head. It is easy to indulge in a jaded attitude when we are asked for help. But that is not the position God has made us for; we are called to a better mindset.

Are you eager for good deeds?
