Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

11 doeth good. People sometimes make fun of those they call “do-gooders,” but God’s Word honors them. God Himself “did good” (Acts 14:17) in creating our world and us, and Jesus “went about doing good” when He was on earth (Acts 10:38). He commands us to “do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith” (Galatians 6:10), and even to “do good to them which hate you” (Luke 6:27). As this verse affirms, “he that doeth good is of God.”
