Good people owe those they help the obligation of protecting themselves from being killed by evil people so that they can live and continue to do good because there is no activity in the grave.
In life being good is good. We have been commanded by the Lord Jesus Christ to do good to all. But we must not forget that we need to be alive to enable us continue to do good. We owe those we help the obligation of protecting ourselves from being killed by evil people so that we continue to do good because there is no activity in the grave. Therefore, as we take risks to help others let’s also consider our own safety.
Matthew 10:16 says “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.”
If good people do not apply this principle of safety harmlessness this world will soon become totally go bankrupt of good people.
