Truly good deeds are less about feeling pleased and more about being at peace
Peace and harmony are not spectacular to behold. Often, they are easy to take for granted especially in an information-overloaded society where everything is about competing for the attention of everyone.
Truly good deeds are not meant to bring about rewards and feel good moments; otherwise, was the deed done for the sake of what’s right or was it done for the sake of what is pleasurable? Truly good deeds are more about bringing peace. And the wonderful thing is that peace and openness go hand in hand, and we are open, we bring about more opportunities to receive graces and blessings.
Matthew 6:1-6, 16-18. Take care not to perform righteous deeds in order that people may see them; otherwise, you will have no recompense from your heavenly Father.
