Do Good

Feeny?! Fe-fe-fe-fe-feeny!

Recently my wife and I re-watched the entire series of Boy Meets World for at least the tenth time. Growing up in the 90s, I thought this was one of the best shows on television and now watching it as an adult, I know for a fact it is one of the best, if not the best, show. There are several reasons why this is such an amazing show: the content of the show was great, the life lessons in each episode hit home and the character’s chemistry was top notch. However, I would say the best thing about Boy Meets World, or person for that matter, was Mr. George Feeny.

Mr. Feeny was the teacher to Cory, Topanga, Shawn and Eric from the time they went to John Adams Middle School until they graduated college. Mr. Feeny was not just a teacher, but was also a grandfather-like character to them. They respected him very much, as did the viewers watching the show. I always say we need more Mr. Feenys in this world.

Throughout the series, he dropped little nuggets of wisdom in their lives. At the very end of the series, in the very last scene, Topanga asked Mr. Feeny for one more nugget before Eric, Cory, Shawn and she left for New York. He told them, “Believe in yourselves. Dream. Try. Do good.” At the end he says, “I love you all. Class Dismissed.” He gave them all the wisdom he had. Now he was sending them out on their own. This was a tear jerker scene.

Do good. This little nugget of wisdom wasn’t just for the four of them, but for us as well. We as believers need to be doing good every single day. We don’t do good based on what the world says is good because the world has a different definition than God. We are called to help those in need. We are called to love others even when we think they don’t deserve it.

But LOVE your enemies, do GOOD to them, and LEND to them, expecting nothing in return (Luke 6:35; bold for emphasis).

Christ has given us His wisdom. Now it is up to us to go out and share that with other people. What are you going to do with it?

Take the sage advice of Mr. Feeny:
DREAM – Philippians 3:13-14
TRY – Colossians 3:23
DO GOOD – Galatians 6:9
I love you all. Class dismissed.  – Matthew 28:19-20
