The Absence of Good

Sometimes it seems the good things we’ve done are erased with one mistake or misdeed.darkness and light And, I suppose that can be true if the bad things are bad enough, or we continue to do them. But, I think we can all agree, there’s not a day goes by that we make no mistakes.

It’s been said darkness is merely the absence of light, and maybe the same can be said with regard to good and bad; bad is simply the absence of good.

Here’s the key: Focus on the good things—even those from the past. Focus on God, seek His knowledge and will for your life, and live each day with your heart full of His love and hope. Do this, and the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.

…he who walks in the darkness does not know where he goes. John 12:36
