“Do something good today and don’t get caught.”
That’s the advice Kristen Bell got from her therapist and then shared on the The Good Place podcast.
Jesus is very clear that the intentions by what we do are just as important as the actions themselves. If you do good just to earn points or for the attention and praise, then it’s not really all that good.
Pray in secret. (Matthew 6:5-6)
Don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. (Matthew 6:3)
I love the idea of trying to do good deeds for people without getting caught. Take the recognition you get out of the equation. Turn it into a game.
How many secret good deeds can you pull off tomorrow?
The Good Place is a wonderful show. Season 3 is about to start next week. The first 2 seasons are on Netflix. I can’t recommend it enough. The podcast is also a fun listen after you watch the episodes.
