Seek good and not evil, that you may live is a very good piece of advice for all us to follow. How does one seek the good? It is not always easy as it looks. Why isn’t it easy? The answer is because we simply get in the way. To do good means to do the will of God! We do the will of God not only when we follow the Ten Commandments but also when we direct others to Him.
How do we know that what we are doing is truly good? The answer to that question comes with asking another question, are we doing it only for God for the betterment of others and ourselves. Many times we do things only because it makes us look good. For us there has to be something more than making ourselves look good, we need to do it because number one God wants us to do it and secondly because it is the right thing to do. May we pray for the grace to overcome our personal tendencies that often get in the way of following the Lord! By seeking the good you and I will truly be a witness to the saving power of God.
