Good Things

If can be hard to see the good sometimes.  The world so full of evil and darkness, deceitfulness and envy.  Often when living in the moment, I tend to question, what difference does it make?  It matters, it always matters, especially when at least one other person will be impacted.  We are not in a position to know what God has intended for us.  In the book of Genesis, Joseph, son of Jacob, was thrown in a pit and left to die, he was sold into slavery, he resisted the advances of a married woman and was put in jail.  Joseph continued to be a good person and saved another man’s life and that man quickly forgot about him when he left prison.  Eventually, he became a ruler in Egypt and saved many lives during a famine.  He never stopped trying, he never stopped doing good to others and all along the way he suffered and must have been frustrated…in the end he never stopped trusting in God and he saved many lives.  Reflect on the road you have been on and look to see the good things.  May God’s peace be with you.
