Good is God

Seek good, and not evil,
that you may live;
and so the Lord, the God of hosts, will be with you,
as you have said.

Amos 5:14

When we read the Bible, we need to pay attention to the context of the verses. Amos 5:14 is a great example. When we read something like, “seek good,” what God is telling us is to seek Him.

Let’s remember: And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone. Mark 10:18 Of course, Jesus is God the Son, but He was telling the rich, young ruler to pay attention when he spoke of spiritual matters. That’s a good lesson for all of us.
