“Seek Good”

Key Verse

““Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live: and so the LORD, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken.” Amos 5:14

Text — Amos 5:11-15


God’s instruction is clear: “Seek good and not evil.” That is, do right and not wrong. But the children of Israel chose to worship idols, cheat the poor and became very sinful. They provoked God with their evil doings. God gave them time to repent, but they refused. While they were on the way, He had warned them that if they got to this good land and began to do the same things like the people they would meet there, He would equally punish them. (Deuteronomy 30:17,18) Yet, the children of Israel did not listen to God’s warning. Therefore, God punished them. We should pray for repentance and revival among members of our families and nations to escape the punishment of God.

The counsel of God has not changed; practise what is good and run away from what is sinful. Consider where you go, what you think, what you watch, what you browse and what you say. Let all your thoughts and actions please God. Then you will enjoy long life, God’s presence, protection and divine provision.
