We are aware that there is evil in the world around us. We see it in the news or witness it first hand in our lives. Nelson Mandela reminded us that, "There is a constant struggle between good and evil in the world. It is up to good people to choose the right side." As we follow God and choose the right side, we need to be willing to walk away from all that is not good!
The temptations of the world are real, but we must be prepared to leave behind the ways of the world as we follow God. We know that He is the Truth, love, and righteousness, but we cannot remain walking down our old paths if we are to become more and do more. God offers new paths that lead to goodness, love, and righteousness. We need to have faith as we commit to walking away from evil and toward God's light!
Walk away from evil and toward the light and love of God!
Thank You for the light and love that You have shown me. Help me to always walk away from evil and toward You. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
