No Good Deed Goes Unpunished is a Lie.

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished is a Lie.

Some experiences may make one believe that No Good Deed Goes Unpunished is a law of nature, at least human nature.

However, No Good Deed Goes Unpunished is a Lie. The following is the truth.

The Golden Rule is attributed to the words of Jesus found in the Bible. It is seen In Matthew 7:12 and Luke 6:31. We read “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.”

It is a great principle to live by whether one is into the Bible or not. For those whose knowledge of the Bible ends there may be surprised how living out this principle has further benefits when one’s motives are pure.

In Ephesians 6:8 the Bible states; “…knowing that whatsoever good thing each one doeth, the same shall he receive again from the Lord, whether he be bond or free.”

In plain English, whatever good deed you do for someone with a pure motive, you will receive the reward of the same in return; somehow, somewhere in the future.

I challenge you to test the hypothesis.
