Seek good, not evil, that you may live. Then the LORD God Almighty will be with you, just as you say he is.
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
What are you seeking to gain out of today? Do you seek good? Or will you pursue evil? Sure, we often don’t call what we do evil, but isn’t that what evil does? Nursing a grudge, spreading some gossip, or feeding a lust is evil, isn’t it? God longs to be with us. He has promised never to leave us or forsake us. But where God goes, his character, righteousness, and goodness must follow! That means we MUST seek good!
Good and loving Father, thank you for showing me what goodness looks like by sending Jesus. Thank you for filling me with your Spirit so I can produce your good spiritual fruit. Thank you for putting me within the Body of Christ, your people, so I can have opportunities to do good deeds for those in need of care. But deep down, Father, I recognize that you alone are truly good. Please help me as I seek you, your character, and your goodness in my life. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
