Seek to do good

Peace be with you

There are two things in life, either good or bad. The Bible encourages us to do good always but we are always drawn in doing the opposite. There is constant fight within us, the fight between the soul (mind) and the spirit. We see from our physical actions who won the battle. Praise be to God that as long as we live we can always come back to God and seek forgiveness in case where the mind won the battle. But pride leads us to lose sometimes to death.

The Bible tells a story of Cain and Abel (Gen 4:1-12). Cain gave his offering first, he had an opportunity to impress God but he failed to give the best, this also speaks of the attitude of his heart. He was selfish, he did not see God deserving quality offering, he allowed bitterness and pride to rule his mind and eventually became a murderer.

On a daily basis you are presented with an opportunity to do good but your heart may lead you astray. Sadly there are negative consequences that may also negatively affect people around us. This brings us back to the commandment of love. When we decide to seek to do good for others we are certain that we know God because we love others.

1 Corinth 13:5 (AMPC) It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong].

Seek to do good and stay blessed
