The Good People

These are the people contributing to our state of normalcy. People with a conscience. Though, of course, conscience needs to be formed from childhood, within family circles, in school, and good companions. A conscience based on the truth, and that means, a people who believe and follow God's laws.

One thing which makes a person of conscience is his truthfulness. He seeks for the truth and acts truthfully in his relations with others. That is what Jesus asks us to do in the gospel, as quoted from the 6th chapter of Matthew, below.

"Be careful not to parade your good deeds before men to attract their notice; by doing this you will lose all reward from your Father in heaven. So when you give alms, do not have it trumpeted before you; this is what the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets to win men's admiration. I tell you solemnly, they have had their reward. But when you give alms, your left hand must not know what your right hand is doing; your almsgiving must be in secret, and your Father who sees all that is done in secret will reward you" (Mt. 6:1-4).
