Good And Evil
Today’s Reading: Proverbs 16:1-9 Version CEV
When a scientist discovers a new formula or a new invention, in most cases is attempting to make available some kind of benefit to mankind, providing a great service.

On the other hand, however, there is always someone waiting, ready to misuse the invention; to transform it into something bad, to change what was invented or created for good into something evil.

It seems that evil is part of humanity. Although God created man in his likeness, as time went by, man became and turned into something evil. It is impressive to see some people creating and others destroying.

Why does this happen? Perhaps because in man exists the selfish desire of supremacy, profit and power. To achieve certain goals, all means are justified, that is what they say.

How can a person, created in the image and likeness of God, let angels and at the same time demons influence him?

Our consolation, our comfort is to know that God guides the destiny of the universe and of our individual lives. Our hope is in God; through His Spirit He opens our hearts and His will becomes ours. Only then, good takes hold of our lives and dwells around us.
