Scott: Good versus Evil

Published 5:10 pm Wednesday, May 10, 2023

Doing good will always have a great outcome. Doing evil will not have one. Though it may sound simple, the fight is intense when making the decision between the two.

Paul speaks about evil that is always present, even when he wants to do good in Romans Chapter 7. Evil seems to surround us as if it was a dark night filled with corrupt behavior. No good thing can come from it. Just as no good thing can come out of our flesh as it demands to be satisfied with evil.

Everything that God created was good and with the intentions of being good. Yet the evil one, our adversary the devil, is the opposite of good. His wickedness and schemes try to get us to side with evil all of the time. Nevertheless, we must keep in mind and our heart that God is good with no evilness in him. Since we are his children, we should reflect his goodness in our life. Our decision should mirror whose we are and who we are. Romans 12:21 says Do not be overcome by evil but overcome evil with good. When we are face with good and evil, good should always trump evil. For when it does, we trump over it. God Bless!
