Doing good is planting seed, the harvest may not show at present but in the future you are going to reap it.
A woman is paid back precisely in the same coin she pays out. If she plants weeds or mean impulses the harvest will be weeds and mean impulses. If she plants seed of good deeds she will harvest good deeds.
The woman who is doing good as she goes along, who is lending help, kindly counsel and encouragement will find the world is a pretty good place to live in after all. As she journeys along through life she will find the good she has done in the past has flourished and returned to her in greatly increased proportions, like the bread cast upon the waters.
It is not only the good one actually gets for the good, she has done, but it is the profit that comes in the way of happiness she gets for her actions. The true way to obtain happiness is to do something for somebody. You get back out of the general exchequer of good in the world full payment for the good you have done, plus a profit of happiness which comes from the very doing of good.
