Evil be thou my Good – Closing Thoughts
Greetings Dear Reader,
We are the ones who try to walk a narrow path when our steps stumble and wander. The journey home is long and often challenging. We choose what we embrace. We carry with us things that either burden or ease our travel.
So many dangers and distractions exist along the way. There is abundant evil that clamors for our attention. It wants to wants to walk with us just long enough to get our attention. Perhaps evil can convince us to simply stand for a while and slow down the journey. It may be that evil can convince us to stand in its company and neglect what we are to be doing. Its ultimate goal is to get us to stop, sit, and scorn that which is good.
Whether we accept it or not we are on a journey. Evil becomes good to us when we fail to keep moving in our journey. We must not embrace that which is not good for and cause even if the cause seems like a good reason to do so. It is in Christ that we must live, and MOVE, and have our being.
Anything that distracts me from this is an attempt to get me to embrace evil over good. There are no issues that do not connect to Christ and his desire for me to follow him. There are not situations or circumstances in which I am allowed to avoid my obligation to love and grace. Any attempt to rationalize being unloving is a proclamation that I am willing to embrace evil over good. In that is the hinge on which all things swing.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
