Goodness, and Greater Things
Make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance. – 2 Peter 1:5-6
Every day we have choices, and when we are faithful and follow the advice above, we are likely to have a good experience in life, with blessings of success.
Last Friday I got a letter, which I should have received at the beginning of the month. It was a critical matter, so Monday, I made calls, but by this evening, I had gotten no callback, and I was apprehensive.
I wrote a respectful email, praying that I could straighten the problem out. I wrote carefully, clearly, hoping I would find compassion. I used all the knowledge of grammar and style possible in my lexicon.
I very quickly got a response that put me at ease.
I did not give up but kept beseeching a solution.
We do well to do our best and apply every knowledge and ability to those things we attempt.
Being kind, tender, caring with the people we encounter and those who inhabit our lives fosters love and teaches us self-control. We choose how our life comes to us. If we desire goodness, we must be busy with it in our days.
God is good, and Jesus is always willing to help us if we are hard-working at well-doing.
Remember, small things add up to more joyful days and eventually may lead to greater happiness. Joy is a foundation under a life; happiness is a pinnacle less often obtained.
Bless you in all you do.
