Seek good and not evil- so that you may live as good comes from God and He wants his children to be happy. Evil is from the devil and God says “Hate evil and love good”. Love and hate are powerful emotions . How does one do good. It is simply by being ‘just’ in every aspect of our lives.
- Giving God his due worship
- Respecting and accepting every person as a child of God
- Fidelity to the spouse and responsible parenthood
- Sharing equitably with the poor.
On the contrary being evil is being injust and doing the reverse of the above. It is depriving others of what God wants them to have, If we only learned how to truly share, there would be no one in need, thus no poverty.
God created a bountiful world, to be shared by His children.. But majority of people experience the bad and not the good. Such injustice is not committed by so called ‘bad people’ but by many seemingly good people of religious faith.
- How do we treat our subordinates?
- Are we human to the people who work in our homes?
- Do we backbite?
What does the Lord say to such people – I hate , I spurn your feasts. (Read Amos 5:21-23a)
