Pay It Forward

Random acts of kindness, when I hear people say that they can go to heaven by doing good deeds, the sound to my ears is like someone taking their finger nails across a blackboard.

acts of kindness

People will give every excuse as to why Jesus is not the only way. Many people today have adapted to what Society calls “Random Acts of Kindness” they believe very strongly that as long as they do these deeds that it will be good enough to get them into heaven.

Remember the movie “Pay it Forward”? The little  boy who decide to be paying a favor not back, but forward – repaying good deeds not with payback? That movie was good and had a great message, but when you think about those acts of kindness that people did in the movie, they are things that we as human beings should be doing everyday. There should never be a special occasion to show kindness to another human being.

God is very clear in his word when he says that Jesus is the only way.

  1. This reminds me of another misbelief that is like fingernails on the blackboard: The “Good” Samaritan. Here is the account –
    Luke 10:25-34

    And a lawyer stood up and put Him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” And He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How does it read to you? And he answered, “YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND; AND YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.” And He said to him, “You have answered correctly; DO THIS AND YOU WILL LIVE.” But wishing to justify himself, he said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”
    Jesus replied and said, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers, and they stripped him and beat him, and went away leaving him half dead. And by chance a priest was going down on that road, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. Likewise
    a Levite also, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, who was on a journey, came upon him; and when he saw him, he felt compassion, and came to him and bandaged up his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them; and he put him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn and took care of him.

    The point of this parable is, whomever we meet is our neighbor. It has nothing to do with being “good.” Jesus truly is the only Way, the only Truth and the only Life; there is no other means for going to Heaven. “Good” is not what makes someone a Christian. It is not the way to eternal life. Okay, enough comment for now, yeah? Hannah
