God’s people must stop discerning good vs. evil to good vs. best. There’s much to fill life with that’s not ‘bad’ …it’s just not the ‘best’. The Apostle Paul prayed for love, knowledge and insight that would lead us to the best.What’s best will always makes us more like Jesus!
Thought for the Day
The axiom that ‘the good is the enemy of the best’ is oft ignored to our own detriment. Jesusfollowers must graduate from discerning good vs. evil to good vs. best. There are many things I can fill my life with that are not ‘bad’ things – but they certainly aren’t the ‘best’ things. The
Apostle Paul prayed for love, knowledge and a depth of insight that would lead us to the best. And what is best is always the thing that makes us more like Jesus.
What criteria can I use for distinguishing between what is good and what is best?
How can my love for others “abound more and more”?
How does discerning what is best help me to be pure and blameless?
Ask God today for the ability to love other people well, and discernment and understanding to make good choices.
