In Galatians 6:10 Paul says,
"let us do good to everyone, but especially to the family of faith."
Our good deeds should reach all people, Christians or not.
We should follow the example of our Heavenly Father who "makes his sun rise on good and bad, and sends rain on the just and unjust."
Notwithstanding the statement of Paul is a priority of responsibility: after the first believers and unbelievers.
I think we can draw from this order, a priority similar regarding our families.
We should do good to all men, but mostly of our family.
Paul told Timothy: "If anyone does not care for her and especially to his own house, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever" (1 Timothy 5:8).
Good works should begin at home. If we go out to do good works while the other "forgotten" the needs of the wife, spouse, daughter, grandson, mother, father, father-in-law ..... we are not exercising the grace of goodness or good works.
As husbands, many of us have enough to grow in the area of good deeds at home.
There are many things we can do inside and around it, to be more sensitive in serving the needs of our wives. Who takes out the garbage in your house?
The best teaching is by example.
If we want to train our children in the practice of good deeds (they must be trained but do not learn to do it naturally), then we should be the example.
I wonder how many boys grow up in Christian homes and never have the privilege to see Daddy do the dishes or scrubbing the kitchen floor?
And how many young people in our churches have not had the privilege of seeing his much vaunted pastor a miserable broom handle in the temple at around the same?
To grow in grace and good deeds, duties and less unpleasant dear home offers an opportunity to do good things to those we most love.
Let us do good to everyone, but especially to our own family.
