No Good Deed

Leave a Comment
In the words of one of the songs in my current favourite musical, Wicked,

One more disaster I can add to my
Generous supply?
No good deed goes unpunished
No act of charity goes unresented
No good deed goes unpunished
That's my new creed
My road of good intentions
Led where such roads always lead
No good deed
Goes unpunished!

No good deed goes unpunished
All helpful urges should be circumvented
No good deed goes unpunished
Sure, I meant well -
Well, look at what well-meant did:
All right, enough - so be it
So be it, then:
Let all Oz be agreed
I'm wicked through and through
Since I can not succeed
Fiyero, saving you
I promise no good deed
Will I attempt to do again
Ever again
No good deed
Will I do again!


If only it were so simple in real life.
If only i could choose to be wicked through and through.
Where will that lead me?

Choosing the way that glorifies God comes at a high price.
Honestly i'd rather fight with the world than with my brothers and sisters in Christ.
But who knew that the most trying of the lot would be the very group called to help, serve and encourage?

Is what i do ever going to be enough?
