Genesis 50:20 NASB "As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive."I have seen it both, good and bad, and the only difference was the way it was used! Today's verse speaks about good and evil and is the reply of one brother to his brothers whose actions were meant for evil! (Be sure to read the whole story as you spend time in His Word!) What I referred to in the opening line was fire! I have spent some wonderful evenings enjoying a good fire with friends, and I have also spent nights battling fire with brother and sister firefighters and the difference was how the fire was being used! In each of us, there is good and bad but the key to living a godly life is how we use the good and leave the bad for God to deal with. God will use the bad to bring about something wonderful if we just let Him, like today's verses story. We need to focus on the good in each of us and not the bad, that's how we can find the strength to pray for our enemies! Find the good in others today and let God take care of the rest! peace, tom
