I do, because Baha’u’llah tells His followers to “Possess a pure, kindly and radiant heart.” What is a kind heart without acts of kindness?
But what is an act of kindness? Giving alms, providing jobs, showing the Path of Baha’u’llah?….
Doing good is good. But many of our good deeds appear as putting salt into the ocean. After our own life of charity, we do not see hope, we do not persevere in our ideal, we do not have faith in the goodness of the human race. It is really urgent for us to find the truth first. All divine Educators make strongest emphasis on this point. When we are not clear about this, we cannot enter the Path of Divine Unity and we waver in the sea of confusion.
The Sun of Truth will give life to all human beings in love, unity, peace.

I know of your work. I think a great deal of it. I know your desire is to serve mankind, and to draw together Humanity under the banner of Oneness; but its members must beware lest it become only a discussion. Look about you. How many committees have been formed, and living for a little while, have died! Committees and Societies can not create or give life.
People get together and talk, but it is God’s Word alone that is powerful in its results.
(Abdu’l-Baha, Abdu’l-Baha in London, p. 107)
Doing good is good
