Seek the Good and Live

“Seek good and not evil, that you may live and the Lord will be with you.” Amos 5:14

It is easy to focus on the evil of this world.  It is easy to dwell on the negatives in life.  It is harder to seek the good, but that is what needs to happen.  We need to seek the good so we may live.  I feel that I can seek the good effortlessly when with my children.  Not just because they provide daily reminders of blessings, but because I want to be an example for them.  If I see or experience negativity, I try to turn it into a positive. They help me seek the good and live.
