So What Are Good Works Like?

What are good works like?  It seems to me that the Christian market place is plastered with self-help books, Godly principle books and 10 step method books.  The idea of good works also brings up the idea of Life Coaches, spiritual gift tests, application sermons and all the rest.  Sometimes I wonder if we have made the idea of Good Works too complex and missed the simplicity of it.  Gerhard Forde in his book, "Justification By Faith--A Matter of Death and Life," offers up some great insights for us to consider.  He states, 
"Faith doesn't ask about good works but does them without all the theological fuss and bother.  Good works are works done in faith, the faith which has simply gotten over looking at itself and its 'progress' and begun to look at the neighbor.  Good works should be quite as natural and spontaneous as a parent running to pick up and comfort a child who has fallen and gotten hurt.  One doesn't stop to think about it.  (Let me see now, should I do this or shouldn't I?  Is it necessary?);  one doesn't even worry about whether it is a good work or not--one just does it.  And after it is over, one forgets about it completely.  That is what good works are like.  They are probably those works we have forgotten all about."
