Doing good unaware
Those mornings when a sense of good health outweighs laziness, I take a morning walk along the New Secretariat road, Kohima. I have observed that there is a short stretch of the road which is swept clean every morning. Every time I take a walk, there is a domestic helper who is out with her broom sweeping that stretch of about 30 feet. She is dark and is certainly a non-local. She must be around 10 years old. I have never spoken to her. But I would admire her work every time and think of this: She may not know that sweeping the roadside clean is a spiritual activity. But I think she is doing a very blessed job. That small area that she is keeping clean every morning I’m sure blesses the heart of God. Good things that some people are doing unaware.
