When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. Romans 7:21 NIV
It is so easy to do wrong. We are surrounded by wrong! From media, to society, it seems that wrong is right. It feels good, it is fun and it is what we desire to do. It is SO important that we maintain our dignity and standards while living in these challenging times.
So how do we overcome evil?
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:21 NIV
I have a four-month old Golden Retriever. When she fixes her eyes on something she wants, nothing else matters. She will not take her eyes off of what has her attention, regardless of distractions. We should be the same when it comes to seeking guidance from the Lord. Let us stay focused on Him to be led to do great things. I know we are faced with temptations, but we must be strong for the greater good.
