We should always remember that the value of our good works is not based on their number and excellence, but on the love of God which prompts us to do these works.
Doing good deeds is good, but only truly inspired if they come from the Lord’s calling. When you see an opportunity to help, take full advantage of it; remember that you are helping spread the grace of God.
Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.
1 Peter 2:12
