Everyday Good and Bad
It all comes down to free will. We have a choice to choose good and evil. Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters. I have made bad choices whether it was telling a lie or stealing but I have also had the same bad happen to me, someone lying and stealing from me. C.S. Lewis said, “If a thing is free to be good it is also free to be bad. And free will is what has made evil possible.
Why, then, did God give us free will? Because free will though it makes evil possible, is also the only thing that makes possible any love or goodness or joy worth having. It’s the freedom of choice that makes love real. Being forced to love God is not real love at all. Accept God’s love, His grace and HIS work on the cross. It’s not about our goodness but His and when we begin to understand this kind of amazing love we can live freely and securely…everyday.
