Living a life of virtue

By living a life of virtue, we are living a life for others. This does not mean that we live our life for the approval of others but for their welfare. In "The Hiding Place" Corrie ten Boom and her family were placed in a German concentration camp for hiding Jewish people. Corrie's account shows the spiritual growth she experienced while in the camp through the example of her sister Betsy. Though frail, Betsy was happy and tried to help others and love God in the midst of horror. After Betsy died, Corrie was released and traveled the world telling others about Jesus. She had some hurdles to cross in her own experience as she sought to forgive and to help others, but the Lord truly blessed her for living a virtuous life. Do you think the Lord also blesses non-believers when they seek to live a virtuous life?
