The sins of some men are obvious, reaching the place of judgment ahead of them; the sins of others trail behind them. In the same way, good deeds are obvious, and even those that are not cannot be hidden.
I see a parade. Good deeds going on ahead, setting the stage, preparing the way. Good deeds trailing behind, not afterthoughts, but gifts, to those who watch or participate in the parade. Like a king whose royal train is made up of good deeds – much better than gold or jewels. Like the flowers at a wedding – good deeds surrounding the godly with beauty, peace and joy. Don’t we want to be known as persons whos lives are characterized by good deeds?
