The Wrong Standard - Micro Blog


"Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with mutual affection; outdo one another in showing honor." ~ Romans 12: 9

 We hear it all the time.  Someone thanks a person for helping them.  The helper bats their hand dismissively at the comment, and, with a look pride, gives it the ol', "Ah, it was the least I could do."

The least I could do?  What kind of a standard is that?  It's same as saying, "I knew you needed help, and I gave you the bare minimum."

Shouldn't the standard be, the most we could do?  Shouldn't that be the standard by which we conduct ourselves?
